The .4053 versions were added with the "Security Update for MS Visual Studio
2005 Service Pack 1" update (KB971090, KB973923, and KB973673). These only
fix a minor security issue related to ATL packages. 762 is the previous
version which has been around for quite a while.

You can build EXEs using 762 and it will load a 4053 DLL just fine, but not
the other way.

I have no idea if the Express edition is limited to 762, but it seems
unlikely, yet sadly possible.
