The VC8 compiler generates a .manifest file by default. This is an XML file
that locates the correct version of a DLL on Windows XP. The XP theming
support is done by comctl32.dll version 6 that can only be identified
through a manifest. VC8 adds manifest support for the Debug/Release versions
of the standard library, ATL and MFC DLLs.

I can only assume that there is a conflict somewhere when generating these
manifest files.
