Windows 7: Visual C++ install problem

Visual C++ install problem

Hi, I'm trying to play Fallout New Vegas, and when trying to launch it (from Steam), it comes up with a dialogue saying "Performing first time setup... Installing: Microsoft VC Redist Package (step 1 of 1). Then windows installer pops up saying:

"The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.17 disk and click OK.

The same dialogue pops up when trying to repair or uninstall Visual C++ from an installer. I'm running Windows Home Premium 64 bit.

Any ideas what's causing this?

Thanks for reading

Any clues anyone? If not, could someone point me in the right direction of a more suitable forum maybe?
Thanks

Aha. And I thought I was the only one having this problem! From what I can tell, only files from before 9/1/2011 have been affected by this problem. HOWEVER, that is also when I began using FixIt to uninstall anything Windows 7 was trying to update before updating it. I used CCleaner to clean my registry, and successfully redirect installers to vc_red.msi in C:\'s root folder.

It's still saying I need the disc whenever I try to uninstall VC 2005/2008/2010, MS SQL 2008, or Silverlight components. It says the location it's currently looking for the disc is "1" but I don't know what that's supposed to mean.

Try this,
1.Install and Run MicrosoftFixIt50747<<please search for download links
2.Download the latest VC 2005/2008 or MS Silverlight and Extract to it's Folders.
3.Copy-paste the Extracted Folder Files to C./User>user>AppData>Local>Temp
4.Open it and install, if it ask you the location of exe files or disk then you have now in this Temp Folders.And all works 100%.
