I can probably re-use the logic from the WinPcap patch I submitted yesterday
in Nmap's setup file so it will launch the correct vcredist file for x86/x64
users if they choose to install it (we can do an unattended install[3] and
silent installation can still be supported[4]). It would also save someone
from having to modify ntdll.mak by hand every time we upgrade OpenSSL. Then
we'd only need to remember to update the 2005 (or 2005 SP1) vcredist files
to the 2008 versions whenever we start compiling Nmap with VS2008 (they
confusingly/annoyingly have the same filenames, and the commands in the NSIS
file may need tweaking to maintain the silent install).

Hi Rob.  That would be great!  You can start from Kris' 2008 branch,
because we are planning to move to that imminently.  If this is
required in order to run Nmap, I think it can be considered part of
"Nmap Core Files" and we don't need to ask the user whether to install
it.

I like your idea of doing unattended install if people call the Nmap
installer with /silent.

Cheers,
