Visio Pro getting C++ Runtime Library

I just installed Visio Professional 2007, restarted, and tried to open, but I get this message:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\VISIO.exe

An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly.

All of my other office applications appear to work fine. Anyone run into this or know of a fix without having to reformat?

You  can launch Visio is Safe Mode by holding down the CTRL key while  launching, then say Yes to launch in safe mode).  See if the same issue  occurs.

Seems like a badly installed DLL file.

Do a search in this folder  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\ for any DLL files (files that end in dll).

If you find any post back what you find.  I suspect you have some files there that should not be in that folder.
