I run RadiusNT on two four NT 4.0 Machines (Two NT Workstations and two
servers) and have never seen this kind of behavior.

NT requires the MSVC40*.dll files to work (its written in Visual C++ 4).
They only time this will cause a problem is if you are trying to update
those DLLs to a newer version (like an install) and there is nothing you
can do but stop RadiusNT during that.

We could compile the portions of MSVC40.dll into the RadiusNT
binary, but that would more than double the size and defeat the
purpose of shared libraries. :(
