The short answer is we grabbed the gtk port for win32 http://user.sgic.fi/~tml/gimp/win32/ and started porting our code to windows ;). The longer answer is that we use VC++ with the nmake makefiles that are distributed with the sources and have had to dive into the gtk / gdk / glib libraries themselves to fix / improve the things we need. Most of our changes have been sent to the win32 gtk mailing list and are available through the CVS repository on the win32 production branch; the rest need to be debugged & cleaned up a bit. Most of our application level gui code is cross platform, except for the initialization of fonts and our use of the native file and directory selecters. When thinking of porting a gtk application to win32, it's important to consider the non-gui differences between win32 and Linux such as file naming and the different process models. I'd be happy to answer any specific questions about using gtk on win32. John
