Occasionally when installing a more recent version of PowerPath than is already installed the installation fails when attempting to install the pre-requisites.   
   
    This is because the pre-requisites are already installed.   
   
    To enable PowerPath to complete successfully sometimes it is necessary to remove the previously installed pre-requisites.   
   
    Warning: Do not remove other versions of VC++ not associated with PowerPath. Doing so may cause the customers applications to fail that rely on that version.
