Good catch! The x64 file is for "Visual C++ Libraries required to run 64-bit

Thanks Rob, this looks great!  I've applied your patches to SVN:

o The Nmap Windows self-installer now automatically installs the MS
  Visual C++ 2008 runtime components if they aren't already installed
  on a system.  These are some reasonably small DLLs that are
  generally necessary for applications compiled with Visual C++ (with
  dynamic linking).  Many or most systems already have these installed
  from other software packages.  The lack of these components led to
  the error message "The Application failed to intialize properly
  (0xc0150002)." with Nmap 4.65.  A related change is that Nmap on
  Windows is now compiled with /MD rather than /MT so that it
  consistently uses these runtime libraries.  The patch was created by
  Rob Nicholls.
