Be sure to install Win7 (64bit) or even better Win10 (64bit).

Those 2 packages are bundled with OpenOffice for the installation
process. They have to be put here:

This runtime is needed for DirectX SDK itself.

This Bugzilla issue was started by Ariel to overcome the "Java not
found" problem in 4.1.3.
Later he decided to bundle msvcr100.dll (32bit) like we did before (in
fact in 4.1.3 it was 64bit, hence the bug).

The Visual C Runtime dll (msvcr100.dll) has to be put here:

And yes, Microsoft wisely decided to name vcredist_x86.exe for VC2008
and VC2010 exactly the same... ;-)
I just renamed them to "vcredist_x86_2008.exe" and
"vcredist_x86_2010.exe" to tell them apart.

I hope that helps!
