Hello Dan,

MSVCP71.dll is the MS Visual C++ 7.1 Runtime Library (which comes with
.NET 2003).

see:  for some info,

The Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 also bundles MSVCP71.dll and MSVCR71.dll

The Toolkit can be downloaded from xona at : (29.9

I know this isn't a direct MS download but it might help in further
investigation :D
