it has been discussed several times and it is in bug tracker - for now I put the info on my course website 
so that students don't miss it and that has so far helped to avoid the complaints from the students

Also, it is actually right on top of the MS-Windows  installer packages webpage
perhaps  it would be useful to put there "if you are getting a message about missing MSVCR71.dll"

Failing that, could we post on the WIKI or somewhere the solution to fixing the insidious missing DLL problem. Maybe even post a link to the fix on the GRASS for Windows download page. Then I could just send people there instead of having to ask on the list (or try to find if I kept the last email of someone who answered before).
