So, I tried the builds I made under a freshly cleaned installed windows
XP on a Core 2 Duo (Macbook)

The installer works pretty fine, nothing to say about it.

At the end of the installer, VLC launches in 10 seconds (quite slow, but
not that much an issue)

However, vlc.exe is in the playlist and playing! WTF?
Close vlc.

Next start is fast to an error
'Le point d'entrée de procédure __input_ItemNewExt est introuvable dans
la librairie de liaisons dynamiques libvlccore.dll'

And once every few starts vlc.exe is in the playlist...

Starting with a right-click in a folder works.
Starting with a double-click on a media file works pretty well too. Even
if Error windows come in front:
"Impossible de reconnaitre le format du média d'entrée:
Le format de 'C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe’ n’a pu être
détecté. Vérifiez les messages pour plus de détails."

Insertion of a DVD starts VLC when selected but adds the vlc.exe too...
The name of the DVD isn't show though...

vlc.exe -Idummy takes 11.8Mb of RAM to start
vlc.exe -Iqt takes 18.5MB of RAM to start
