Hi Sergey,

We choosed Visual studio 6.0 because most of distributed win32 packages 
of gstreamer's dependencies are built with mingw or vs6 and linked to 
msvcrt.dll which is a system dll.
msvcr71.dll is not a system dll and you need to include it with the 
package build with vs7.1 :(

Have you built all win32 compliant gstreamer plugins with vs7.1 ?
I know a way to force vs7.1 to link on msvcrt.dll instead msvcrt71.dll 
but it's not really clean.
