PostPosted: Visual C++ General, vcredist_x86 lockup Top

I just installed VS 2005 SP1.  In order to distribute the CRT, etc., I've included vcredist_x86.exe in my installer and set it to run before exit.  This worked fine with the pre-SP1 redistributable. 

The problem is that with the SP1 redistributable, vcredist_x86.exe locks up when it's called from my installer.  It never completes and must be closed via Task Manager (the offending process is msiexec.exe).  Running it via Explorer works fine. 

Does anyone have any ideas about this
