Bootstrapper Package | detect vcredist installed | Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package

As a countinue post of my previous http://mdb-blog.blogspot.com/2010/11/bootstrapper-package-visual-studio-2010.html about Bootstrapper Package ( Visual Studio 2010) of Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable, i give an example for:
Bootstrapper Package for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package
(also known as Visual C++ 9.0 runtime redistributable package)

As I searched for many sites, I couldn't find any GOOD article about detecting this resi package.
So, I built a bootstrapper package using the information I found on Aaron's post: "How to detect the presence of the Visual C++ 9.0 runtime redistributable package" at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2009/01/29/9384143.aspx.

First of all, we have to detect if one of (vcredist_x86, vcredist_x64, vcredist_IA64) is INSTALLED!
To do so, we will use the MsiQueryProductState API inside our Product.xml in the bootstrapper package folder. (for more information about bootstrapper package files watch my previous post.
Because there is a difference in the Product-Code between the localized versions of the redistributables for VC++ 2008, i checked and write down all the product codes in the following table:

  1. hello,

    can you please tell me, can I implement this boottrapper in WIX ?

  2. This is really great! But I'm trying to do the same thing for the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012. I assume it will be pretty much the same thing except different product codes. Do you know where I can get the Product Codes for VC++ 2012? Thanks!
