VS2005 did some significant changes to the CRT, but most are reversible through compiler switches or #defines. Most important, they completely dropped the single threaded runtime libs (ie. libc), because they're pretty much useless nowadays, and can cause havoc if they somehow slip into a multithreaded project.

Usually you can just remove the reference to libc and relink against an MT library, and your code will run fine.

About the VC2003 toolkit, I would recommend against using it in conjunction with any IDE. Some people used in with the standard version of VS.net 2003 (in order to get the optimizer), but this was an extremely unstable combination, that caused several problems with managed code, and random failures/crashes of the forms designer. It can only be worse when trying to combine it with 2005.
