I'm not so sure it's a problem - from Visual Studio's redist.txt:

For your convenience, we have provided the following folders for use
when redistributing VC++ runtime files. Subject to the license terms for
the software, you may redistribute the folder (unmodified) in the
application local folder as a sub-folder with no change to the folder
name. You may also redistribute all the files (*.dll and *.manifest)
within a folder, listed below the folder for your convenience, as an
entire set.

<snip ATL stuff>

\VC\redist\x86\Microsoft.VC80.CRT\
msvcm80.dll
msvcp80.dll
msvcr80.dll
Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest

\VC\redist\ia64\Microsoft.VC80.CRT\
msvcm80.dll
msvcp80.dll
msvcr80.dll
Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest

\VC\redist\amd64\Microsoft.VC80.CRT\
msvcm80.dll
msvcp80.dll
msvcr80.dll
Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest

I'll try a test build in a clean Win2K VM and report back....

Regards, Dave.
