1.0 Installer, Link to Visual Studio free edition...really??

In regards to the dialog box that pops up during 1.0 install if you don't have visual studio installed, [picture of dialog box]

I've always loved typing in nearly 90 character links filled with fun things like hex numbers, but this is kinda...well stupid. Maybe a link or something selectable would be a little nicer. Or, at least the shorter link: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=115

Yeah, sorry about that...  I had expected people to hit ctrl-C (which works in most simple dialog boxes), paste it into notepad, and then copy the URL.  I'm not a WiX master and didn't know how to make the URL link off the top of my head so I just left it at the dialog box.  If you happen to know WiX we'll gratefully accept the fix (our WiX scripts are in Release\Product\Setup) otherwise please open a bug and I'll figure out what we need to do to add the clickable link.
