It's very possible, yes.

Regina, this log is about the installation. Do you also have another
error log in the "Event Viewer" that is produced when you launch
soffice.exe? It probably mentions manifests and MSVCR90

Also you can use the tool mt.exe to check the manifest. The syntax is
something like:

$ mt.exe -inputresource:soffice.exe -out:soffice.manifest

(mt.exe should be located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft
SDKs\Windows\v6.1\bin or a similar location)

Thanks again :)
