You need to convince MingW to use the correct VS runtime. Cribbing 


the easy way to do this might be to find(in your mingw /lib directory) 
and copy or rename libmsvcr71.a and libmsvcr71d.a into libmsvcrt.a and 
libmsvcrtd.a (backing up the originals if desired). If the MingW you 
have installed doesn't provide the appropriate runtime, you would have 
to track that down.

The MingW/GCC package from the linked page provides a utility to do 
this, but it is a tossup/up to you if the version of GCC provided is 
suitable for 'production' use.
