What version of the compiler are you using for the build? If it's
Visual Studio 2008 the C runtime libraries version 90 are installed
with the compiler and it would be very strange that it doesn't find

In any case, can you post the output of the error that you can find in
"Administrative Tools" -> "Event Viewer" -> "Applications"? That
output can probably give us more hints about the problem.
