Subject [RELEASE] Bug 119424 (Microsoft VC Redistributable) as blocker?
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2012 12:16:18 GMT
It seems, reading messages on the Italian mailing list and forum, that
(which apparently would be fixed by including a newer version of the 
Microsoft VC redistributable) is effectively blocking the installation 
of OpenOffice in some circumstances (due to the bug, the related part of 
the installer tries to write in C:\ even when it is forbidden by policy).

Can someone who knows more check whether the redistributable upgrade is 
low-risk and can be included in 3.4.1? Those users are currently unable 
to install OpenOffice at all, if reports are correct.
