What did I use to take that shot?

It works if you run it from the 'Run' option on the Start button, giving the
fully-qualified path of the image file.  Once there, of course, you can
select it again and again, just changing the file reference.

That shouldn't affect it;  The C/C++ runtimes install in what
Microsoft call the side-by-side (SxS) environment, which makes
it possible to have several different versions installed.  It's
more likely that the redistributable doesn't include the debug
versions of the libraries, and I uploaded a debug build of the
original ScanTags program.

In any case I've put a new version up for download, built as a
release (not debug) version, and linked against static libraries.
Thisd should run without requiring any additional environment.
