I quietly made a change on my web site at <

end of the month. I really want to get it done.

If you Jaap or anyone else wants to pitch in now, go right ahead. I probably
can't work on it until Friday night. :^)

If you try to help, read README-BUILD-win32.txt and do what it says; the
failure occurs on the last line.

As I said earlier, the build_win32.py works fine and you can run the
'compiled' result of that script, inside the project folder, with your
global GTK runtime's folders still in your $PATH. The build script for the
INSTALLER, create-zim-setup.nsi, currently doesn't include everything you
need to run Zim. I suspect there's a part of GTK that's needed now and
wasn't an issue in 0.46.

That's where we stand. Should be solvable.
