I'm getting an error during installation on Windows XP:

C:\Program Files\WinMerge\ShellExtensionU.dll
Unable to register DLL/OCX: RegSvr32 failed with exit code 0x3
Click Retry to blah blah blah...

The program will not run. My system is a relatively fresh install of XP. I do have Visual Studio 2010 Express installed, in case that is related.

Using WinMerge-2.12.4-Setup.exe

    I installed the .NET 1.1 runtime, then tried re-installing WinMerge, DID NOT HELP.

    WinMergeU.exe - Entry Point Not Found

    The procedure entry point ?replace@$basic_string@GU$char_traits@G@std@@V$allocator@G@2@@std@@QAEAAV!@@IIPBGI@Z could not be located in the link library MSVCP71.dll.
