alacritty: Alacritty crashes on Windows 7 on startup

I’ve downloaded the two binaries from Not sure how to run the application but it crashed on double click. Here is the output when I use -vvv switch from cmd:

@zacps I don’t have msvc toolchain on my current machine. However I can test it on another machine or download the toolchain on this one later. Will post here when I do it. Thanks 😃
