Visual C++ library error

If you have a problem when extracting the library from a DLL file in Visual C++ and you got this error message: Application unable to start, mspdb80.dll was not found.

Then, we have the same experience.
It has something to do with the environment variables, all you have to do is to run a script to set this. Here's how to do it:

1. Go to : c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC and run vcvarsall.bat

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC>vcvarsall.bat

Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 x86 tools.
and after that you can run all the tools (I hope so), it works with me.

Good luck.
