Odd problem since I updated the DirectX SDK install.

I have been using an older DirectX SDK, I think it was from 2005, and everything was working fine. But then there was that recent game programming contest on one of these forums, and I wanted to play the entries. That required me to update the DirectX SDK I had. Well, since I did that, everything still works fine as long as the retail direct3d runtime is chosen. But now, if I have it set to the debug d3d9 runtime, every single program that uses direct3d throws up an error box claiming:
---------------------------
AnyD3D9Program: AnyD3D9Program.exe - Entry Point Not Found
---------------------------
The procedure entry point _ftol2_sse could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll. 
Where "AnyD3D9Program" is replaced with the actual program running of course. Clicking on OK will allow the program to continue, and it doesn't seem to crash. Some programs may present that error message multiple times, but eventually if you click OK on them all, the program continues normally. Google has returned much of nothing on this, and what it has seems to be related to programming with the DDK and none of the search hits were related to Direct3D. Anyone seen this problem?

This is a know bug of the new SDK. Microsoft linked by accident the debug runtime with the Vista version of msvcrt. To solve it until the next SDK arrives you could copy the d3d9d.dll from the april sdk to the system32 folder.
