Cannot Start Tor in Win XP or 7 (Vidalia.exe - Entry Point Not Found)

Component: Applications/Tor bundles/installation Version:
Severity: Keywords: Entry Point Not Found - Dynamic Link Library

When attempting to launch the Tor browser from a USB drive (latest version v1.3.15), I receive the following error under both Windows XP and Windows 7 when clicking "Start Tor Browser.exe":

"vidalia.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point _Z17qt_message_output9QtMsgTypePKc could not be located in the dynamic link library QtCore4.dll"

I downloaded the browser bundle directly from Tor's main page and extracted to my local hard drive and USB drive. In each instance, I was unable to successfully launch Tor.

This looks to me like there is another copy of (an older version of) QtCore4.dll somewhere on his PATH.

Upon closer inspection, it seems as though the bundled .exe is corrupted and did not extract all files correctly. After downloading the bundled .exe again from the Tor project's website, I was left with a similar result after reformatting the USB drive and attempting this on multiple workstations.

On the third attempt at re-downloading and extracting, I was finally able to get the bundled .exe to return an error stating that some of the .dll files could not be extracted.

Please let me know if this helps or if you need further information.
