[erlang-bugs] 64bit windows installer

Hi,

While attempting to perform an unattended installation of the 64bit
R15B01 Windows version of Erlang we discovered a possible flaw with the
VC++ redistributable version checking.

If you pre-install vcredist_x64.exe and run the Erlang installer with
the "/S" flag for silent install, then a dialogue pops up to ask whether
you wish to repair or remove the x64 redistributable.

If you pre-install both vcredist_x86.exe and vcredist_x64.exe and run
the Erlang installer with the "/S" flag then the installation completes
silently.

This seems unexpected and might be considered a bug.
