Shortly speaking: you must for Python 2.5 link with msvcr71.dll. The
version of the MSVC compiler is unimportant if you can force it to use
this CRT. Check your link libraries, and see if you find one for this DLL.
Otherwise, you need to create a .def file for this DLL and create the link
library from that. And make sure you don't link with other CRT versions.
