[PD] start-up messages weirdnesses

I've been using for a long time an old version of GEM, because for a
series of compatibility and stability issues it was the only one that
worked for me when I investigated, which was a couple of years ago
(2007). At that time, the latest official release dated back to 2004 and
the version I chose and still use is dated august 2006.
I should now try the latest version, however I'm getting some messages I
can't understand, and above all I can't understand why I get these
messages with the same version of PD and GEM on one machine and not on
others when the only difference is Windows version (and possibly some
third party software/codecs/drivers) but not PD or GEM versions.
Here's the all the init messages I get in Windows Vista:

On the other hand, on older machines with windows XP, with the same
version of gem and also of PD I don't get any of the warning messages.
I have only a remote dubt (and cannot check) that I may be wrong about
the PD version that does not give the warning messages: it could be
0.42-3; however I'm almost sure it is 0.42-4, the same that does give
the warning - however both are definitely 0.42-x and both gem versions
are the very same Gem.dll file.
Anybody can explain where's the difference?
Also, what's the exact meaning and history of these messages? I'm sure
this has already been discussed in the list but I can't find it in the
archives (a typical case of difficult formulation of significant keyword
combination), so if anybody can point me to an old thread where this was
explained, that would be a great help.
Thank you in advance
