MSVCR80D.dll: how to avoid?

Unfortunately I'm not sure how the alternate method can be used in VStudio. :(

IDE: Code::Blocks
Compilers: GCC, MSVC, etc. ;)
OS: WinXP-SP2 & Linux.

Ok I got it fixed but I don't understand the underlying cause.

I figured out that the root cause was that the manifest file that's being produced is incorrect.

After searching on my harddisk for MSVCR80D.DLL I found it in a hidden directory which is correct but the version number of this dll does not match the version number specified in the manifest! I have no idea why this is and where Visual Studio is getting this version number.

Anyone know?
