We've had an earlier report of this which we've so far failed to pin
down the cause for. The runtimes it's complaining about are included
in the installer as a merge module produced by Microsoft and included
as part of the 'base' feature so it really should work (though you
might need to list base in your list of features when runing the
silent install).

Does this happen on more than one machine?

Does manually installing the runtimes help?
