Description
Our patcher.exe is not statically linking with vc7.  So if the user does not have msvcr71.dll in their system directory, patch-in-place will not work correctly.

SUGGESTED FIX

add this line:

# Tell Defs.gmk that we want a static link of the MS runtime libraries
MS_RUNTIME_STATIC=true

to the patcher Makefile at:

install/make/installer/bundles/windows/ishield/wrapper/wrapper.jre/Makefile
