Alright. I did a lot more research and fixed the problem. It was a combination of old VC8.0 run-time (I was shipping the pre-SP2 VC8.0 run-time) and placing the 'Microsoft.VC80.CRT' directory under every sub-directory that contains a dll. This way it can load the run-time for each library individually. Please take note of this because if there is a manifest embedded in a dll the run-time will be loaded for every dll that gets loaded. This is a great waste of resources, but this is the way Microsoft now requires it, so we can't fight it. Also it seems like a waste of space, but I guess disc space is cheap.
