Hello nsnb

Anders is right with is assumption, vc_redist spawns his own process
actually I don't understand what you try to achieve with your command
with your command you decompress the contents of vc_redist, there you start again a vc_redist where you decompress the contents and start the MSI installer!!!

so there are probably 3 childprocess spawend!
I simply use '"$TEMP\VS2008_SP1_vcredist_x86.exe" /q'

if a real feedback for the user is needed you should install the redistributable files manually
decompress the content and add it file by file to your installer.

Also I wouldn't uninstall the VC redist
Because other programms installed after your application my depend on it!!
so your uninstaller will probably break other apps!
