Hi John, I just tried this out and if I copied all of the .dll files from the icu4c bin folder into the same folder as the test icu.exe it works as expected. You can see what dlls are missing with the dependency walker program http://www.dependencywalker.com/. Perhaps with a mingw based build of icu4c (the one I used said it was built with Visual Studio 10) you could avoid this.
