That's odd.I had exactly ythe same message from my Toughbook on boat but it's XP SP1 straight from the disc.Only MS update is the wireless and the daylightsavings...
To get newest openCPN to work I chanced on this from my pile of keepers.
I installed vcredist_x86.exe file version 9.0.30729.17 which is also called Visual C++ 2008 but it nowhere says "SP1".

If nobody smarter comes along compare the version with yours in "Properties" If it is different,and you can't find it online, PM me...
