Hi Patrik:

Aparently its telling you that gtk isn't installed properly.  This
should be installed with glade.

I would try uninstalling all versions of glade, and installing the
version from  Also, I'd uninstall all versions of GTK
from your computer.  There are several different installs of GTK

See if you can get the glade program to run by typing :


at the prompt.  Check the version,  It should be 3.6.7.

What version of windows are you running?

Does anyone else know the cause of this?

I found this using google:

"I'm getting The procedure entry point libintl_snprintf could not be
located in the dynamic link library intl.dll. when I try to run GIMP or
use plug-ins. How do I fix it?
Some broken application (often one of HP's logon enhancement programs)
placed a file named intl.dll to your Windows or Windows\System32
directory. Rename it, and GIMP will work fine. Report any problems this
causes with other programs to makers of these programs - intl.dll has no
place in System32 directory."

"OK, for future help in case anyone has a similar issue, I found the
stray intl.dll in c:\windows\sysWOW64\ "
