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

(This concerns Vista Home Premium only.)
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.

Is a file edited with 0.6.0 RC1 compatible with latest stable release (I
guess it is 0.5.9) ? 
I think I need to go back to using it for now if I want to use the
Now after restarting Windows I get the error message attached (Unable To
Locate Component.jpg) and Grisbi does not start at all.

Unfortunately, 0.6.0 account files are not backwards compatible with
version 0.5.9.

If you have kept a backup copy of your original 0.5.9 account file (as it
was suggested many times, on the website, and on the mailing lists), you
can safely go back to the 0.5.9 version.

If you haven't done so, you will have to fix the problem with you 0.6.0
installation. To do so, you can :
- copy the .dll files from the GTK installation directory (c:\program
Files\GTK2-Runtime\bin by default) into the grisbi installation directory;
- or download a fresh copy of GTK
and copy all the .dll files from the bin directory of the archive into you
grisbi installation directory;
- or add the directory that contains the .dll files of your GTK
installation to your PATH.

Any of the given possiblities should achieve the same result. If one of
them doesn't fix the problem, try another one.

If, as on the screenshot you added, a file is missing, and you choose the
1st or second option, try locating the file on your disk (in the GTK
install directory) and copying it into the grisbi installation directory.

In any case, please post the result in this ticket, so that I can act upon
