Cannot install ClockworkMod Recovery

Quote:

Installing a custom recovery on Galaxy S II

Download codeworkx's ClockworkMod Recovery, and the Heimdall Suite:

codeworkx's ClockworkMod Recovery: download

md5: 364315cb9a499d50638d05b93bb44422

Windows:

Heimdall Suite 1.4RC1: download

NOTE: The Heimdall Suite requires the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package to be installed on the computer, which can be downloaded here.

Release Candidate (RC) versions may require the Debug Visual C++ 2010 DLLs which Microsoft does not offer for redistribution or download

Power off the Galaxy S II and connect the USB adapter to the computer but not to the Galaxy S II.

Boot the Galaxy S II into download mode by holding down Volume Down, Home & Power while connecting via USB.

Windows only:

Run the included zadig.exe in the drivers folder of the Heimdall Suite.

Choose Options » List All Devices from the menu.

Select Samsung USB Composite Device or Gadget Serial or Device Name from the drop down menu.

Click Install Driver.

NOTE: A prompt may appear warning that the installer is unable to verify the publisher of the driver, ignore it and select "Install this driver anyway."

Untar codeworkx's ClockworkMod Recovery into the Heimdall directory.

On the computer, open a terminal and run the following command from the Heimdall directory:

heimdall flash --kernel zImage

A blue transfer bar will appear on the device showing the recovery being transferred. Once completed, the device will reboot automatically.

The Galaxy S II now has ClockworkMod Recovery installed. Continue to the next section.

Okay, so I downloaded the ClockworkMod Recovery and the heimdall suite, and I unzipped them both. It took me a while to get the step with the Zadig.exe working on Windows 8, because it doesn't allow unsigned drivers, but I got that working. When I tried to do the "heimdall flash --kernel zImage" bit, I get an error saying msvcp100d.dll cannot be found. Now I checked in Programs & Features, and it says that I have Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (like 3 times), Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64), Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable x64 9.0.xxxxx, Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable x64 9.0.xxxxx, Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable x86 9.0.xxxxx, Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable x64 10.0.40219, and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable x86 10.0.40219.

So I decided to try and get a msvcp100d.dll off the net, I put that in the System32 and in the directory of heimdall.exe and it still did nothing differently.

Now that should be enough? All it needs is the Visual C++ 2010 redistributable.. right?

Though it does say this "Release Candidate (RC) versions may require the Debug Visual C++ 2010 DLLs which Microsoft does not offer for redistribution or download"

Now.. what can I do? It shouldn't be this hard should it?

I've also tried this on 2 other computers too, 1 of them running Windows 8 and another running Windows 7. Same thing.
