Dot.exe is not running on WinXP SP2

- Installed graphviz-2.28.0.msi on Windows XP SP2.
- Tried to run dot.exe to generate png but the it says that the system cannot runn the program and to try re-installing.
- It runs fine on Windows 7.
 
Is this a known issue? Is there a simple workaround?

Visual C++

I think your problem is probably that you don't have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, which comes with 7 but not with XP.
