A user just reported that the intel redistributable installer was very slow to run for him. His computer seemed to hang for what must have been the better part of a minute or so before it got going. Does that indicate some sort of problem? The installer is being run from an NSIS install script. When I run the script myself in a virgin OS, it runs fine. The specific file is w_fcompxe_redist_ia32_2013.5.198.msi.
A related question: If the user's installed redistributable package is newer than that used to build a console program he is trying to run, is that a problem?
