CRRedist2008_x86 - no longer downloadable by PRQ (prerequisites) file?


We've just encountered a problem with downloading CRRedist2008_x86 as a setup prerequisite.

Our product includes CRRedist2008_x86.msi as a setup prerequisite downloadable from the web. We haven't had an issue with this previously, and probably haven't exercised it in some time. However, today we did and it fails to download via Windows Installer, or directly from InstallShield via the prerequisites definition (i.e., .PRQ) file. I manually followed the URL in the prerequisities file and I was able to download it successfully that way, but I noticed that the file size does NOT agree with that info in the prerequisites file.

The URL I followed (from the prerequisites file) is:

Has the download at the above URL been revised, and if so is there a new prerequisites file available that is in synch with the (presumably) revised MSI file??
