The Win32 backend in GTK+ is not as stable or correct as the X11
one.
The Win32 backend in GTK+ is not as stable or correct as the X11 one.
For prebuilt runtime and developer packages see
http://www.gimp.org/win32/downloads.html .
There is also a gtk-1-3-win32-production branch of GTK+ that was
branched off from before the addition of the no-flicker and other
functionality that was new in GTK+ 2.0.0. The vesion number used for
that branch is 1.3.0. It corresponds most closely to GTK 1.2.7 on
Unix. For new code, you shouldn't be using that.

Building GTK+ on Win32
======================
There are two ways to build GTK+ for win32.
1) Use the autoconf-generated configure script, and the resulting
Makefiles (which use libtool and gcc to do the compilation). I use
this myself, but it can be hard to setup correctly.
First you obviously need developer packages for the compile-time
dependencies: Pango, atk, glib, gettext-runtime, libiconv, libpng,
zlib, libtiff at least. See
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies .
Note that I first always edit the ltmain.sh file like this:
sed -e 's/need_relink=yes/need_relink=no # no way --tml/' <ltmain.sh >ltmain.temp && mv ltmain.temp ltmain.sh
After installing the dependencies, there are two ways to build GTK+
for win32.
Personally I run configure with something like:
CC='gcc -mtune=pentium3 -mthreads' CPPFLAGS='-I/opt/gnuwin32/include -I/opt/gnu/include -I/opt/misc/include' CFLAGS=-g LIBS=-lintl LDFLAGS='-L/opt/gnuwin32/lib -L/opt/gnu/lib -L/opt/misc/lib' ./configure --prefix=c:/devel/target/HEAD --with-gdktarget=win32 --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-debug=yes --enable-explicit-deps=no --with-included-loaders=png,bmp,gif,ico,jpeg,tiff,xpm
1) GNU tools, ./configure && make install
-----------------------------------------
Then you should just be able to run "make", like on Unix.
This requires you have mingw and MSYS.
An issue is with the gdk-pixbuf.loaders file. It's probably best to do
a "make install" in the gdk-pixbuf directory, and let that set up a
mostly correct gdk-pixbuf.loaders in the target directory. Then copy
that back to the source directory. It's needed in gtk/stock-icons
where make runs gdk-pixbuf-csource.
Use the configure script, and the resulting Makefiles (which use
libtool and gcc to do the compilation). I use this myself, but it can
be hard to setup correctly.
Etc, you get the idea.
The full script I run to build GTK+ 2.10 unpacked from a source
distribution is as below. This is from bulding GTK+ 2.10.9, slightly
edited to make it match this 2.11 development branch. Actually I don't
use any script like this to build the development branch, as I don't
distribute any binaries from development branches.
2) Use the Microsoft compiler, cl and Make, nmake. Say nmake -f

You should not just copy the above blindly. There are some things in
the script that are very specific to *my* build setup on *my* current
machine. For instance the "latest.sh" script, the "usedev" and
"usemsvs6" shell functions, the /devel/dist folder. The above script
is really just meant for reference, to give an idea. You really need
to understand what things like PKG_CONFIG_PATH are and set them up
properly after installing the dependencies before building GTK+.
As you see above, after running configure, one can just say "make
install", like on Unix. A post-build fix is needed, running
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders once more to get a correct gdk-pixbuf.loaders
file.
2) Microsoft's tools
--------------------
Use the Microsoft compiler, cl and Make, nmake. Say nmake -f
makefile.msc in gdk and gtk. Be prepared to manually edit various
makefile.msc files, and the makefile snippets in build/win32.

The tablet support uses the Wintab API. The Wintab development kit is
