version 9.0.30729.17 of 2008-08-08.

These libraries have been updated since then at least twice due to
vulnerabilities, see
<http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS09-035.mspx>
and
<http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS11-025.mspx>
Did you check if these vulnerabilities be exploited via this product? I'm not 
suggesting that its OK to distribute outdated libs, just to understand the 
risk a little more.
