      Description

      When using windeployqt with MSVC 2013, it will properly copy all of the Qt runtime files, but not the CRT runtime redistributable DLLs. It shows this warning:

      Warning: Cannot find Visual Studio redistributable in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\redist.

      Looking at the path in the warning, there are indeed no DLLs there:

      C:\Users\admin>dir "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\redist"
       Volume in drive C has no label.
       Volume Serial Number is 40B8-9C98
      
       Directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\redist

      08/05/2014  12:20 PM    <DIR>          ..
      08/05/2014  12:20 PM    <DIR>          Debug_NonRedist
      08/05/2014  12:20 PM    <DIR>          x64
      08/05/2014  12:20 PM    <DIR>          x86
                     0 File(s)              0 bytes
                     5 Dir(s)  47,163,379,712 bytes free
      

      It seems that they're buried a few levels deeper (depending on the arch):

      C:\Users\admin>dir "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\redist\x64\Microsoft.VC12
      0.CRT"
       Volume in drive C has no label.
       Volume Serial Number is 40B8-9C98

      08/05/2014  12:20 PM    <DIR>          ..

                     3 File(s)      1,979,888 bytes
                     2 Dir(s)  47,163,379,712 bytes free
      

      windeployqt needs to start looking in the right place for the MSVC CRT DLLs.
