I have just tried to install the latest InnoSetup version
(http://web.telia.com/~u86216177/cvsnt-22.214.171.1244.zip), but it displayed
a lot of dialogs about missing MSVCR71D.dll file. After having closed
them one by one, the install finished, but the cvs*.exe files could not
be run because of the same reason.
Don't you pack the debug version by chance instead of the release one?
