On some machines, the application (makehuman, an open source software)
crash, immediately, as soon the user try to double click on the exe. The
problem happen with the version compiled using python 2.6, while the one
compiled with 2.5 work fine.

We have asked to our users to try the installation of  Visual C++ 2005
Redistributable Package, but this hasn't fixed the crash.

Both binary files (compiled using gcc and debug symbols with 2.5 and
with 2.6) are here:


Installing full python2.6 it work.
Unistalling full python2.6 it don't work.
Installing python26 and deleting C:/python26 folder (without unistall
it), it work again...

gdb output from one of our users:

warning: LDR: LdrpWalkImportDescriptor() failed to probe python26.dll
for its manifest, ntstatus 0xc0150002

You can't do that without a process to debug.

Anyway, before consider the bug solved, we need to test this solution on
different computers.
