      First, you will always need to install the "core binary", which can be found in the project downloads here under slashem-win32.  It's the larger installer and NOT labelled GTK.  That is playable, and it has a very simple windowing interface if you don't want more advanced GUI, point-and-click features.

      The other option is to use GTK-SlashEM, which is slightly more complicated.  After the above procedure, you have to download the GTK+ for Windows runtime environment from http://gtk-win.sourceforge.net/home/index.php/en/Home
      You need 2.4.x or later, and the latest seems to work fine.  Install that somewhere, make sure it updates your path to be able to find the GTK+ runtime libs directory, which GTK-SlashEM needs.  When that is done, now you can download and install GTK-SlashEM, once again found under slashem-win32.

      Now you can run whichever version you want, from your start menu.  The first time you run GTK-SlashEM, you have to point it to the SlashEM directory, because it uses the main executable.  Later you can just choose "connect."  It may be correct by default, but if you get an error that is probably the cause.  An instant .dll error is probably because the GTK+ lib directory is not in your path.
