I have exactly the same problem.
But for WinXP SP3

I can't make wx work with newer version than R13B02.

But, while debugging the werl.exe with Windbg sometimes the wx:new(),  
works ...
And when it fails it's in a call of RtlEnterCriticalSection or  
something like this...

Last, if you want to know the real VC++ needed you can open the  
wxe_driver.dll and search
for its "manifest" (it's at the end of the file) you'll find the real  
version that is needed...
