avva has helpfully hacked LogJam back together on Windows and has provided an update to the LogJam for Windows download. Please let us know if it works for you!

(The offline sync is known not to work, but he's looking into it.)

Nope, doesn't work for me. Complains about some dlls being missing.

I do already have GTK installed. It came packaged with the latest gaim installer, and is GTK+ v2.6.2 rev a. Is there a different version I should have installed?

Well, can you tell me which DLLs it complains about?

libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll
libgdk_pixbuf-2.0-0.dll
libglib-2.0-0.dll
iconv.dll
intl.dll
libgmodule-2.0-0.dll
libpango-1.0-0.dll
libpangowin32-1.0-0.dll


(in that order - note that I added each to ~/windows/system32/ as it was requested)

After going through all those, I got a "procedure entry point g_assert_warning could not be located in the dll libglib-2.0-0.dll."

It seems that the GTK DLLs distributed with Gaim aren't full-fledged and probably have only been built/tested only against Gaim.

You do, then, have to install the GTK Runtime environment from the link in the post in order to run logjam. There need be no problems of DLL conflict. You don't have to put anything in SYSTEM32 (and should probably delete the Gaim GTK DLLs you copied there). Gaim will pick up its own DLLs as it does now (because they're in the same directory the executable is, I'm guessing?). logjam will pick up the "universal" GTK DLLs because the installer will put a path to them into %PATH%.

Thanks for the suggestion. I got LogJam to run after installing the GTK from that site. Unfortunately, after doing so, the skin/theme for Gaim that I chose upon installation reverted back to the native one. (Gaim's GTK had been installed to ~/program files/common files/gtk/ in the first place.) So I uninstalled GTK, reinstalled it to the same location and both LogJam and Gaim now run (Gaim without its skin, of course).

Ugh. It probably shouldn't be too hard to bring Gaim's skin back to it, but I'm very new to GTK myself and just don't know all the details about the configuration files in etc/ and whatnot.

I get this error when trying to post an entry. The screenshot was taken a few minutes after attempting to post.

Okay, having checked my journal, I find that the entry I was attempting to post in that screenshot was, after all, posted correctly, in spite of the client's unresponsiveness.
