I searched the "post pgAdmin3" machine image for "mfc90.dll"
and didn't find it anywhere.  Presumably, 1.10.5 did *not*
require this runtime?

Installing the above URL resulted in a copy of mfc90.dll
turning up under Windows\WinSxS...

And, not surprisingly, pgAdmin3 1.12.2 now starts correctly.

Are you *sure* the pgAdmin installer is configured to install it?
(I don't have the tools with me to examine the .msi itself)

Also, the above URL indicates a *newer* version of the runtime
is available ("SP1"). Should that, instead, be installed?

Thanks for your help!  Let me know if there is anything else I
can capture from the install process to assist you in chasing this
down (hmmm... I should turn on the installer's logging and take
a peek at that)
