              a. "EAC was released two months after the release of
                 the service pack"

              2011-09-11 is two months later than 2010-05-17?

              b. "EAC is written in Modula II and needs no MSVCRT++"

              The satellites used by EAC but need it!

              c. "EAC uses SQL Compact DLLs from Microsoft, which
                 request the exact library version in their manifest
                 (Visual Studio 8 enforces this). Since I use the 
                 latest SQL Compact Installation I had to include the
                 corresponding MSVCRT++ DLLs"

              - the manifests of the sqlce*35.dlls refer to version
              - Visual Studio does not enforce anything in a manifest
              - see <http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/aa375680.aspx>!
              - the latest SQL Compact Edition is NOT used, see above
              - the "corresponding DLLs" version 8.0.50608.0 are NOT

              d. "what does 'application local' mean?"

              Obviously, the developer has no clue how manifests and
              "side-by-side" installations work and didnt notice the
              contents of REDIST.TXT
