I think the problem is that the 0.80 release for win32 was built
against a much earlier version of GTK and so you are encountering
dynamic link problems against a much newer version of the library.
I have been trying to build against the latest gtk for win32 myself
and am encountering some troubles. I'm not sure if this is a gtk
problem per se, because my hard drive died and I've had to reassemble
my win32 build system from scratch.
You might want to back down to an earlier gtk version for now, as
Or use another backend on win32... or wait until I can get my build
system sorted out at which point I'll release a build against the
latest gtk for win32.
