      There is a known issue with things working on Vista having to do
      the _access() function. For example, the application gcc uses
      _access() to find other tools such as cc1.exe and the usual gcc
      fails on Vista -- the usual gcc needs to be patched to work on
      Vista. If VIM uses _access() to find things, vim is likely to
      fail too.

      My very high level understanding: In older MSVCRT, passing X_OK to
      _access was the same as passing F_OK. But in Vista, passing X_OK
      returns the error "invalid param value".
