No, I did install the Platform SDK (and tweaked the VS 2005 startup
script to invoke the SDK startup script, to set up INCLUDE and LIB
paths correctly).  But I wasn't sure about the correct order of the
paths (since there could be duplicate libraries/headers).  Also, the
Platform SDK had several versions since VS 2005 was released, and I
wasn't sure the last one that's available is compatible with VS 2005.

But since you've got the same crash with your prepackaged version, I
think my fears were unsubstantiated, and the crash is a real problem.
