Description

Qgis keeps on installing VC redistributable version 9.0.30729.17, regardless whether a newer version of VC++ 2008 (9.0) is already installed on the machine, like 9.0.30729.6161.

To do:
1. Update vc_redist in the installer packed to the latest one.
2. Make the installer check if a newer version is already installed.
3. Is Qgis still really built on VC2008, in 2018??? (Yeah, that's a separate issue.)
