You didn't mention from where did you obtain those binary files you are
testing with. I would be desirable that all the dependent dlls use the same
CRT settings and the dlls should also have their manifests to be embedded as
a resource. With the recent OS versions (Win XP or above) the dll loading
approach have been changed when the binaries have been compiled with VS2005
or above. In this case the CRT dependencies are loaded based on the manifest
file instead of based on the directory locations and PATH environment
settings. The required CRT version should be installed in the side by side
assembly cache (WinSxS) which can be done by using the redistributable

You could also try with the packages from
http://vbkto.dyndns.org:1280/sdk/Default.aspx  which I'm pretty sure it
should work when the corresponding VS redistributable have been installed.
