The reason for the failure is the missing file VCOMP120.DLL. No idea how this is possible because the file is supposed to be part of the re-distributable.
@wmayer, thanks for testing and troubleshooting. The VCOMP120.DLL is indeed present on the (non-build) system that I used for testing. It was already present as I didn't have to install the VS2013 redistributable.
Were you able to install the missing .DLL and did it fix the problem workbenches?

The fem module raises the dll error
@ microelly, I was able to reproduce this on another XP machine. I must have some residual FreeCAD on the test machine that FreeCAD finds. I will investigate this this evening.
Does anyone have any idea how ektus's x86 test is finding the old version of python(2.6). The new libs use 2.7. Could there be anything left over in the .cfg file from previous installations?
Thanks everyone for testing and providing feed back. Has anyone besides me had either version pass the unit test?
