I am trying to install the iis node using iisnode-full-iis7-v0.2.1-x64.msi on Windows Server 2008 R2, but it keeps asking for Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable Package (x64) even though I have installed both the Visual C++ 2012 redistributable package 64 and 86 versions. Any advice to solve this issue?

Thank you,
Best Regards,
Ronald Wisnu Hariyanto

I have the same problem on both Windows 2008 R2 64bit and Windows 8 32bit system.
Tried reboot multiple times and repair/reinstall Visual C++ 2012 package.

I have the same issue on Windows 7

This is an issue in the iisnode MSI whereby it incorrectly checks for the version of VC++ 2012 redist installed on the machine. VC++ 2012 redist recently released an update that fails the check iisnode MSI implements.

While I work on the proper fix for the issue, the workaround is to install a previous version of VC++ 2012 redist. The x64 version is here: http://www.mediafire.com/?0y7gcd3uljjrecy, and the x86 version is here: http://www.mediafire.com/?ingc0rvfp7uwbys

Any prognosis yet on the real fix for this thing? I just don't like the feel of that 'workaround'...
I really want to see what a WebMatrix/nodeJS/Express app will do in 64-bit mode before I go out on a limb with my team...

I will try to get a fix out this week. The fix will most likely be to include the required parts of VC++ 2012 redist within the iisnode MSI, such that no prior VC redist installation will be required.

That would be great... Thanks much.

The fix has shipped as part of iisnode v0.2.2 available at https://github.com/WindowsAzure/iisnode/downloads

It seems to have installed ok - We'll give it a shot.

Thank you! I can install it with no issue!
