Further to my initial description, we have just tried with the demos 
included in 
ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/gtk+/2.22/gtk+-bundle_2.22.1-20101227_win32.zip 
and we get the same runtime error.

The problem seems to occur with versions higher than 2.12.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

Thanks very much

Liz
