I've run into the problem of the missing DLL. So I'm building my external with Visual Studio 2010, which links the file automatically with msvcp100.dll. However, as I've seen, the Max installer installs the msvcp7* versions of Visual C. So what is the recommended/preferred way to overcome this problem?
1) Downgrade to an older version of VS?
2) Link against the old files using current VS? (I'm not sure how this should be done, anyway...)
3) Include the missing Microsoft DLLs in my release?
4) Some other solution I'm not aware of?
