I have been following tutorial at http://www.py2exe.org/index.cgi/Tutorial
Step 5.2.1 runs well, but the app generated on dist directory can't run on another windows machine which doesn't have Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package installed. The tutorial explicitly said: " Now, simply copying the whole dist directory to your users machines should now allow your application to run, even on machines that don't have their own copy of the C++ runtime.".

Here are steps i actually did:

-Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package on my development machine (Windows XP SP2), since i can get MSVCR90.dll and manifest just from it.
-Search the apropriate DLL (MSVCR90.dll), and found these files on my machine:
    C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\Manifest\x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.21022.8_x-www_d08d0375.cat
    C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\Manifest\x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.21022.8_x-www_d08d0375.manifest
    C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.21022.8_x-ww_d08d0375\msvcm90.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.21022.8_x-ww_d08d0375\msvcp90.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.21022.8_x-ww_d08d0375\msvcr90.dll
-Copy these files on C:\devel\py2exe_project\runtime
-Create hello.py on C:\devel\py2exe_project:
    print("Hello")
-Change the contents of C:\devel\py2exe_project\runtime\x86_Microsoft.VC90.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.21022.8_x-www_d08d0375.manifest to:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
        <assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
            <noInheritable/>
            <assemblyIdentity 
                type="win32" 
                name="Microsoft.VC90.CRT" 
                version="9.0.21022.8" 
                processorArchitecture="x86" 
                publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b">
            </assemblyIdentity>
            <file 
                name="msvcr90.dll" />  
        </assembly>
-Create setup.py on C:\devel\py2exe_project as follow:
    from distutils.core import setup
    from glob import glob
    import py2exe
    data_files = [("Microsoft.VC90.CRT", glob(r'C:\devel\py2exe_project\runtime\*.*'))]
    setup(
       data_files=data_files,
       console=['hello.py']
    )
-Run python setup.py py2exe, and  everything goes well
-Run dist\hello.exe, it works and prints  Hello  on screen.
-Distribute the whole package (dist dir) and run this app on another machine, but failed and display  dialog with following message:
    E:/dist/hello.exe
    This operation has failed to start becase the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Anybody know how to fix this problem? Any help would be appreciated.
