I was led to this place by @Chris from stackoverflow. My original question and steps I have taken (thanks to Chris' suggestion) and outcomes are at : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/30972920/emacs-hang-after-installing-gtk3-in-windows-7. Basically under windows 7, emacs setup was fine until I installed GTK3+ for windows 7. Then emacs hang while starting. The menu appears but everything else not.

My original intent is to learn common lisp, and specifically use cl-cffi-gtk package. Now it looks like that I have to do this under linux using a VM. It bugs me a lot since my main working environment is windows 7. Thanks a lot.

Sorry that I can't use gtk3 as tag because of lack of reputation.

  • Sorry I am still new here, so I don't know the proper format to self-answer: I have got the solution to this problem after filing a bug report in emacs. I think it might be beneficial for any others who want to develop gtk3 using emacs under windows. – Andy Jun 29 '15 at 3:01
  • To use gtk3 with emacs under microsoft windows (7 at least): One has to use the image ports from ezwinports first. You only need the libsrvg and its required dependences: sourceforge.net/projects/ezwinports/files. And install them into the emacs (I use 24.5) directory.

Oh, I just saw the "Answer your question" Button. So I copy the above solution in my comments here.
