1. The file named as "msvc90.dll" appears wrong. I believe that it 
should be "msvcm90.dll", with that second "m" in the file name.

Or msvcr90.dll. But both msvcr90.dll and msvcm90.dll should be in the same location anyway, in the 
WinSxS (side-by-side assembly) directory for the VC90 runtime.

Typically there are several versions of the VC90 runtime installed, in folders with names like 
c:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft.vc90.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.4926_none_508ed732bcbc0e5a , 
each with three files: msvcm90.dll  msvcp90.dll  msvcr90.dll.

I don't know exactly how the C and C++ runtime is split up into these three DLLs. I do know 
msvcr90.dll is the most basic one with mainly the C library functions.

2. PRAY strongly that end-users and non IT personnel do NOT try the 
above "Registration of LibreOffice as default application for..." steps 
and really screw up their systems(!)  

Hmm, I am not a Windows sysadmin, maybe a specific example of what will go wrong would be nice?
