I guess it's because the projects are Linux based ones, and Linux devs
don't have the same way of setting up projects for Windows. You just
have to take it on the chin and do the work required to make those
solutions. Well done, BTW. When you're finished, I'd like to know where
you store the VS project files and how to get the project code so I can
have a bash at it myself. :)

MSVCR90D. You have built with debug, and this is not on the target box.
Usually debug builds run n machines with VS installed, but I think you
can get it installed if you install the visual c++ runtime msi.

DWMAPI. This is some stupid dll from Microsoft for Vista. You don't need
it as it tends to be linked dynamically through the delay-load
mechanism. The same applies to SHLWAPI and MPR - these are loaded
dynamically and *always* give dependency errors. The quality of Windows
has gone very downhill since the early days of NT. Ignore these 'errors'
in dependency viewer.
