In 'System' is the content of the popup
Anwendungspopup: soffice.exe - Komponente nicht gefunden: Die Anwendung 
konnte nicht gestartet werden, weil MSVCR90.dll nicht gefunden wurde. 
Neuinstallation der Anwendung könnte das Problem beheben.

No other entries.

mt.exe : general error c101008c: Failed to read the manifest from the 
resource of file "soffice.exe". Der angegebene Ressourcentyp wurde nicht 
in der Image-Datei gefunden.

I'm not sure that I call it right. I'm in Cygwin and set source, change 
to the folder with soffice.exe and call

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

I get the same error with
mt.exe -inputresource:soffice.exe -out:soffice.bin.manifest

Kind regards
