Potential issue in ScummSpeaks and other GUI tools for Win32

I’ve received an error report from a user of ScummSpeaks. Attempting to start the Win32 binaries in Windows XP failed, and the user received this message in the log file:

This error is caused by the missing file “msvcp71.dll“. This file comes from the Microsoft Visual C++ 2003 (7.1) runtime. You will need to find and install that runtime, possibly by installing the .NET 1.1 framework runtime, or finding the DLL and copying it into the application directory.

I will probably need to repackage all GUI application Win32 binaries to include this DLL.

Running from the source code will not have this issue.
