 > 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.

 msvcr100.dll is part of standalone `Visual C++ redistribution package`.
 Redistributable Package installed by Visual Studio or by a 3rd party
 softwares, every day used computers with windows7 usually have to install
 it. Except not every newer redistributable package versions contains it
 but [https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-
