Christoph, thanks for pointing this discussion. That's a perfect match.

If the workaround provided offers a solution to the current 
redistribution issue, I'm wondering if it will still be the case when an 
update to the assembly check function will be activated/implemented 
(within Windows).
The manifest edition (removing the "assemblyIdentity" tag) doesn't seem 
to be a popular/official/supported way of dealing with the whole runtime 
libraries issue. Don't you think ?
