What you see in the event viewer log is just the result of the bad
upgrade, not the reason :)

Thanks for your log file. Seems that when doing an upgrade, msi first
checks whether the CRT is already installed, decides to skip the
installation, but then *later* removes those because of the upgrade (and
RemoveExistingProducts action).

Do you have Orca installed? It's part of the Windows SDK. If yes, please
open the TSVN msi file, go to the InstallExecuteSequence table, then
change the "Sequence" number of the "RemoveExistingProducts" from 1401
to 201, then save the modified msi file.

This *should* fix the problem, but since I can't reproduce the problem
in the first place, I can't be sure. And before I commit that change I'd
like to know whether it would work or not...
