In A97 you needed to have the runtime/ODE installed to use
/runtime switch. Installation included more than just the
required (Office Runtime) dll, 'cause I copied that in and
/Runtime still wouldn't work correctly. I'm told that in
A2K you can use /Runtime without a runtime/ode install, but
I've never had a chance to test that.
