py2exe and msvcp90.dll

Hi all,
I am still fighting with py2exe; I keep getting "error: msvcp90.dll:
no such file or directory" right after it says it is searching for
required dlls. I have followed the py2exe tutorial, though, and I am
not sure why it is not finding the dlls, which are in both
c:\windows\system32 and in mainFolder/dlls, where mainFolder is the
main folder of my project, containing Here is my setup file:

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe
from glob import glob
data_files=[("Microsoft.VC90.CRT", glob(r'c:\arm\dlls\*.*'))]
setup(data_files=data_files, console=['main.pyw'])

Of course, the location to glob is hard-coded. Also, I do not intend
this to have any console. Can I just omit the console argument? I
leave it in for now since the tutorial seems to indicate that such a
file is necessary, but I do not want to have one eventually. Thanks in
advance, as always! Oh, the entire source is at
as it usually is (and this time, I tested the link!).

Have a great day,
