Installation fails on Windows systems that don't include a copy of mscvr71.dll (the C runtime), KB326922 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326922) suggests that this file should be packaged with the installer. Can this be included in future versions (precluding any licensing issues)?

    Last I looked, you need a paid version of MS Studio to be allowed to package msvcr71.dll, I only have the free (express) version.

    I think that you can package vcredist (which installs these components) without owning the paid version.

    I also wonder if there's a newer version of express that you can compile with, python includes msvcr90, so at least that will be in the search path when apps are run with python or pythonw.

    If not, a quick note on this problem on the project page would really help people sort through this.
