Well, the thing here is that it's a test application, so editing manifest files for
it is not very attractive option. It appears like the linker is very happy to link
against debug version of CRT, but that CRT is not installed in the winsxs folder,
so it's not found at runtime.

Do you know if that "Redistributable package" includes debug CRT? Is it normal that
freshly installed Visual Studio needs redistributable package to be added up?
