MCR failed to load in Windows 7

Subject: MCR failed to load in Windows 7

I have a stand-alone exe made with MATLAB R2009b and Windows XP SP2.
This ran successfully in Window XP, but failed to run in Windows 7.

I installed MCR v711 on the Windows 7 computer.
When I ran the .exe, I got the error (read in cmd window):

Fatal error loading library C:\Program files <x86>\..\v711\bin\win32\mclmcr.dll
Error: The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.

Please help.

I had this same problem, and what fixed it was installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable.
