This is a known problem.  nt/INSTALL clearly says that VS 2005 is not
supported.  Jason told you some of the reasons.

When this came up during the pretest of Emacs 22.1, we felt that,
given the availability of the MinGW port of GCC, expending to much
effort on adding VC8 support is unjustified.  You are welcome to try
to make it work and submit the resulting patches, of course.

We tried to use libcmt, but the resulting binary crashes because some
conflict with memory allocation functions.
