Also, the MSVCRT used by VS8 is not typically installed on WinXP, so
this link might help:


Basically, Visual Studio 8 includes a file (on my PC its in C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\vcredist_x86) vcredist_x86.exe that
will install the updated MSVCRT for you and allow the app to run.
