[Script] Origin (scientific software, not the EA one)

Origin from OriginLab is a plotting and analysis software widely used in science. I guess for a lot of people in the science sector this software binds them to use windows, because it's one of the few programs in science that is neither available for Mac nor for Linux.

What I had to do to make it work

I managed to get it working with this tip on the official OriginLab forum: http://www.originlab.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10428 However as this tip is a little bit outdated I had to adjust one of the components. (You need to install VCRUN_2012 in order to have a native msvcr110.DLL)

What works:

Everything I tested so far. From opening files from colleagues to plotting and analyzing my own data.

What doesn't work:

Nothing that I could spot.
