The second gem is for the actual .dll file, called
gem.dll(when loading an external with Pd you don't
include the extension ie .dll), what you have to do is
to start pd from the command line with -lib and then
type 'gem'(ie, the gem library) including its path, so
it may look like this

pd -lib D:/my_pd_dir/my_gem_dir/Gem 

For now if you like, just 'cd' to the directory with
the gem.dll in it from the command line, (cd changes
directory), once you are in the same directory as the
gem.dll start pd like this,

pd -lib gem

That should definitely get it started. The problem you
are having is that pd can't find the gem.dll in
/pd/gem/, so chances are the gem.dll is not in that
directory but another directory.
