digitalmars.D - gtkD program fails to run

When I run the "hello world" program in the gtkD demos I get the following 
error message...

The procedure entry point gdk_app_launch_context_get_type could not be 
located in the dynamic link library libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll

Does anybody know what I need to do to rectify the problem?

I am using the latest gtkD download, gtk version 2.22 and D Compiler 2.053 
to build it.

Thanks,

Are you using the gtk runtime linket from the GtkD dsource page ? If so could you try the one from the gnome ftp: ftp://ftp.gnome.org/Public/gnome/binaries/win32/gtk+/2.22/gtk+-bundle_2.22.1-20101227_win32.zip -- Mike Wey

Thanks Mike, Yes I'm using that gtk version. The error message is mentioned on the dsource gtkD site but no solution was provided there. I'm looking round for a cross-platform GUI library - I'll guess I'll have to cross gtkD off the list :-/ -=mike=-

So far in can think of only two thing that might cause this error, either the the installer linked from the GtkD dsource page is flawed. Or you have a application on your pc that includes an older version of gtk and this causes dll problems. For the first one you could try the bundle from the Gnome ftp. -- Mike Wey
