Re: [windows build fix?] Binding to wrong MS CRT when building MS VC++

Actually I do not think it is a good idea to use this flag. It does
not make the bins work against (any) crt version but only again the
version used at compile time. That makes very hard to provide
development files or binaries usable by 3rd party project.

The only case where this flag could be useful is when one installs the
required CRT alongside his application. Something I would not
recommend to do, generally speaking.
