It is interesting that the 64-bit vcredist is needed.  This is true
even when installing an Nmap which was compiled for 32-bit?  Does the
32-bit vcredist refuse to install on 64-bit systems?

The x86 version of the redist installs on both Windows x86 and Windows x64. 
It obviously installs x86 binaries, only.
The x64 version of the redist installs on Windows x64 only, and it install 
the x64 binaries, only.

Another option might be to ship just the DLLs we need (as we're
apparently doing with Zenmap).  Though that might come with its own
troubles (perhaps with respect to handling the 64-bit dlls).

Another option is to just include the x86 vcredist with the .zip file,
and give a URL for the 64-bit version when people need it.  Can Nmap
easily detect a missing vcredist and prompt the user to download +
install it?

Anyone have ideas as to the best way to handle this problem?

Cheers,
