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

EVALUATION need to statically link the patcher
