Installing vcredist via App Up

Installing vcredist via App Up

Hi, The app I am working with requires vcredist to run. I have made an MSI-file that installs the program just fine and after the installation allows for installation of vcredist_x86.exe by a checkbox. However, when I submit the file, and install it via AppUp the "Oops, something weird happended" message is displayed. The MSI-file is created as by the guide in this forum, and then editting the MSI-file as per this guide This runs a .bat-file that runs the vcredist installer. Basically, after the installation is done, a .bat-file installs vcredists, as required, which works when installing by running the MSI-file, but not when installling via AppUp. Thank you, Joel

challenges, the link below explains in further detail:
