Welcome to DLL Hell. MSVCRT is a "Known DLL".
It will always load from System32. Your install needs
to update the copy in System32

For more information on 'Known DLLs', see this link:

Please direct additional questions to the newsgroup,
rather than email, so others may benefit from the
discussion.
