Hi Frank,

I've downloaded and executed osgeo4w_setup.exe.  I opted to install
everything in the list.  The installation went smoothly and was intuitive.
Once complete I opened the OSGeo shell and attempted to run shpproj.exe.  I
received the following message:

The system cannot execute the specified program.

I have verified that OSGeo4W\bin is in my PATH.  If I navigate to the bin
dir I receive the same message:

The system cannot execute the specified program.

Prior to installation I performed a search for MSVCR90.DLL and could not
find a copy (although I'm not entirely confident about Windows' search

Let me know if there's anything else I can do.

Best regards,
