afair, pd-extended will put the Gem-binary (Gem.dll) into extra/
whereas it really should go into extra/Gem/
if the Gem.dll is besides the gemhead-help.pd it should correctly find 
the help-patch for [gemhead].

alternatively you could try to install Gem manually (there is a nice 
installer for w32 on http://gem.iem.at) which will put the help-patches 
and binaries in the correct place.
