Subject Re: Installation Experience and Feedback
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2012 03:07:27 GMT
I add one:
"Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Maintenance" page always
pops up and ask me to repair or remove it, even though vc++ 2010
redistributable pack has been installed.
I prefer directly skipping the page when it's installed.
