Fraid so! In the good old days things would require msvcrt.dll, which
was part of Windows. Now each major release of the MS compilers comes
out with a new runtime. The LuaBinaries standard is basically VS2005
(msvcrt80.dll), and most people seem to be building against that now.
But (alas) you then have to include that damned runtime...
