For some crazy reason, MS doesn't give redistribution permission except to commercial users of Visual Studio. Which is weird since it's a "known .DLL" and part of the OS. Or at least different versions are (as you've noticed). Quite a pain. I don't know why MinGW uses that bastard, it's horrible. Several projects (e.g. Python) had problems due to that restriction.

Anyways, I think "COPY %windir%\system32\MSVCR71.DLL MSVCRT.DLL" (on 32-bit Windows Vista or 7) might work, but I can't verify right now.

The best solution would be to recompile with something that doesn't need it at all, e.g. OpenWatcom, but I know that's not always feasible.
