 > Do you know if all Win7 systems have a copy of msvcr100.dll in their
 system directory?  If so, then probably only WinXP (and possibly Vista)
 users are affected by this bug.

 No idea.

 > Although comment:12 has been "deleted" I think its contents are still
 relevant.  One potential solution would be to ensure that the PATH
 contains the Browser\ directory (since it contains both libssp-0.dll and
 msvcr100.dll).  This would only need to be done when starting the updater.

 Sounds good to me.
