vcredist sometimes hangs or loops on Windows 7

I have made an installer using NSIS and it turns out that for some Windows 7 users (I estimate about 1% of the total) the vcredist installation hangs or even enters an infinite loop where it starts over and over again. Why is this happening and how can I fix this?

The vcredist_x86.exe I am installing is from Visual Studio 2005. It also seems to somehow happen with one of my own programs that I run after that. This is the relevant part of the installer:

ExecWait "VCRedist\vcredist_x86.exe /Q"
ExecWait "Proun.exe CONNECTIONTEST"

I have not seen this happening myself, but several users have reported this to me on my support forum. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!
