Description Brent Fulgham 2013-05-10 14:10:31 PDT
Some of the non-open source libraries used by the Apple Windows build are currently built using VS2005.  These libraries link again MSVCR80.dll, but do not include a manifest that tells Windows which of the myriad of MSVCR80.dll files to use.  Consequently, Windows throws up its hands and gives up.

This patch incorporates a manifest entry in the WinLauncher tool that tells it which specific version of MSVCR80.dll it should use when trying to run.  This avoids problems when running a VS2010 WebKit build with these current support libraries.

In the future, this manifest entry could be removed.  Even if we forget, it should be harmless as long as we do not someday switch to some other MSVCR80.dll version (unlikely).
