Hey Brian,

I'm curious why mixing different versions of Visual Studio runtimes would  result in a problem. I thought you can mix different runtimes so long as:

1. You link against a DLL (as opposed to static linking).
2. You use the same kind of library (debug vs release, 32-bit vs 64-bit).

Meaning, if one project links against a 64-bit Release DLL from 2008 I expect it to interoperate fine with a 64-bit Release DLL from 2010. The DLL is supposed to be backwards compatible, is it not?
