To install:
When distributing VisualPng (or a further development) the following options
are available:
1) Build the program with the configuration "Win32 LIB" and you only need to
include the executable from the ./lib directory in your distribution.
2) Build the program with the configuration "Win32 DLL" and you need to put
in your distribution the executable from the ./dll directory and the dll's
libpng1.dll, zlib.dll and msvcrt.dll. These need to be in the user's PATH.
