This is a new issue meant to resurrect Issue 5459.  When Python 2.7.x (and 2.6.x before that) are installed for all users, then 'msvcr90.dll' is not created in the installation directory.  It does if you install for a single user.  However, many Windows users install Python for all users by default.  This causes problems later when trying to install software that combines any sort of C or Fortran code.

When you install for all users, the msvcr90.dll is also installed for all users and should appear in your System32/SysWOW64 directory.

What sort of problems are you facing? Compiled DLLs/pyds that are loaded into a running Python process should reuse the already loaded DLL (and Python won't have started if it couldn't resolve the CRT DLL).
