Successfully built a version of cairo Webkit and was running winlauncher on my 
old development machine.

Copied the bin directory with all of the built exes/dlls to another machine and 
tried to run WinLauncher.

This is when I run into the problem of side by side dlls. I have installed the 
vs2008 runtime. In the event log is was getting messages like
Activation context generation failed for
Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",
type="win32",version="8.0.50727.5592" could not be found. Please use 
for detailed diagnosis.

What I understand it was looking for a specific version of the MSVCR80.DLL file. 
copied the three runtime dlls into the current directory and created a .manifest 
file for Winlauncher. This moved the problem to another dll asking for 

The other dlls that were causing me problems were the ones from 
Webkitlibraries\bin. Is the source available to rebuild these with out using a 
manifest for each dll generated.

As anyone else had these problems.
