TortoiseSVN 1.6.2 enters the DLL Hell?

Message After upgrading from 1.5.8 by running the 1.6.2 installation on a MS Vista-32bits platform, the FileExplorer integration disappeared and starting TSVNCache.exe gives the following message:

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.

My event log now contains messages like:

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\​bin\TortoiseSVN.dll​". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT,p​rocessorArchitecture​="x86",publicKeyToke​n="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"​,type="win32",versio​n="9.0.30729.1" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

FYI: I had installed VC90 Express Edition and have in my Windows\WinSxs the following versions of Microsoft.VC90.CRT:
version=9.0.30729.1 (Yes, and with manifest file: x86_microsoft.vc90.c​rt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_​9.0.30729.1_none_e16​3563597edeada )

I had similar problems with installing my own software (see, as an example: http://geodms.svn.so​urceforge.net/viewvc​/geodms/dev/nsi/ ) on different machines and solved it by distributing the assembly with its own manifest file into a subfolder named "Microsoft.VC90.CRT" of the bin folder. I would have preferred to just use whatever VC90.CRT is available in the winSxs and/or install the tested assembly version there, but for some reasons this didn't work for me.

I hope anybody can make use of this info.
