Yes you're right it's not as clear as it should be. It is mentioned in
the more detailed installation instructions, but not directly on the
main download page:
I recently made a couple changes to that page and the main download
page. One good change and accidentally a bad change:
I changed the links to dowload the Gtk+ installer from the
gladewin32.sf.net website where all the different packages are available
to link directly to the files list for the "gtk+-win32-devel" package:
However when I updated it for the 0.9.10 release I accidentally removed
the mention of the 'devel' version when talking about which versions are
ok. I'll fix that.
However beyond that, the installer should have detected that the devel
stuff was not available and given a helpful message. I'll have to look
into what was going wrong there.
Thanks for your patience Keith.
