 eventlog is you can spot any, use [http://www.dependencywalker.com/
 dependency walker] find details about it.   I still think the server is
 just missing some ''Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package''.  It
 would be nice if you could identify which particular one it is.

 There is no problem with the path. I just find it confusing; in windows
 should be "C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\qgis", but it works nevertheless.

 And you are right with the "SidebySide" error. I checked the application
 event log at the server, and spotted this message:
 "Activation context generation failed for "C:\OSGEO4~1\bin\SSLEAY32.dll".
 Dependent Assembly
 could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis."
 I will try the "dependency walker", but maybe there is already sufficient
 info to solve the situation.
