Running SETUP.EXE rather than SETUP.MSI will automatically extract and install these packages. See How to Install the App-V Client by Using Setup.exe (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee956911.aspx) for more information.

The App-V client setup requires VC++ 2005 Redistributable version 8.0.59193 and VC++ 2008 Redistributable version 9.0.30729.4148 before setup will proceed. These packages need to be installed in addition to KBs 2467174 and 2467175 to satisfy the requirements of the Side-by-Side manifest. The order of installation of the packages does not matter.
