Summary:                    GTK installer default settings do not work with
Windows Vista Home Premium
This concerns the installer:

0.5.9 was installed prior to this installation and it was not

When using GTK installer one needs to change the settings in 'Install DLL
files to' and use <instdir>\lib - otherwise the program does not start.

All the tests  I have done before have showed no such problem.
Might be a problem with the PATH variable.

However it seems very strange...

Could you confirm that the problem is the same with the RC1 installer?

Thank you

RC1 had the same problem - but now I must say that I am not sure whether
this is a some sort of compatibility problem or what:
I uninstalled all previous Grisbi versions and installed RC1 in the folder
Grisbi. Install failed until I closed all the possible processes I could
find using Process Explorer - even closed explorer.exe*. After that I was
able to install RC1 with the previously mentioned GTK-settings; all other
attempts failed.

Failure here means that when trying to start the program after
installation, one gets prompt saying "The procedure entry point
png_set_expand_gray_1_2_4_to_8 could not be located in the dynamic link
library libpng12-0.dll."

*I have software called True Launch Bar ( http://www.truelaunchbar.com/
)that is some way integrated into the explorer.exe and thought it might
have something to do with the issue.
