Additional Comments

I see that the DLLs are included in the installation, but the difference that I'm seeing between my windows installation and the Linux install is that in Windows, there's an additional atl80.dll located way into the Windows directory - C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.ATL_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.42_x-ww_6e805841\ATL80.DLL
