OpenCV 0xc0150002 Error

I'm just getting started with OpenCV 2.1, and followed the instructions on http://opencv.willowgarage.com/wiki/VisualC%2B%2B_VS2010 and I can build and compile with no issues, but when I run the application, I get an error message saying:

The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002). Click OK to terminate the application.

I am using Visual Studio 2010 on Windows XP 64-bit.  I had the same issue on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, but a windows XP professional (32-bit) running as a virtual machine on that Windows 7 PC worked fine.  I don't know if it is a 64-bit thing or what.

I looked all over the interent, and unfortunatly I can't find anything that solved my issue.  I have already installed the Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable, since that is was everyone said to do.  I've also looked at this page: http://opencv.willowgarage.com/wiki/VC2008Express, which was a little outdated (it refers to OpenCV1.1pre1 and Visual C++ 2008).  I've been able to do the whole Cmake thing and compile the stuff myself, which goes fine AND the samples run fine, it's just my stuff when I try to follow the instructions that I run into problems.

Thanks in advance.

The above link has a bad link reference in it. But it does refer to this EE link (which should be good) that may help:

Those links just told me to do what I have done already: install the Visual C++ Redistributable or recompile the source.
Has anybody out there gotten OpenCV to work in Visual Studio 2010 on a 64-bit OS.  As I mentioned, I don't know if it is a problem with 64-bit, but my two machines that it will not work on are running 64-bit versions of windows.

Okay, I don't really know why it didn't work before, but I installed the VC++ 2005 redistributable again, and now everything works.
