for instance.
you could also try to point Pd'd path to the location of the new Gem.dll
(make sure to add it before the path to the old Gem)
or open cmd, cd into the build directory and run pd.com from there.

run with "-verbose" and see whether it searches at the right place.
is there some other output?
also try to run pd.com from cmd, and see whether something interesting
is printed to the console.

you should try to run the gem_imageJPEG.dll from the release besides the
new Gem.dll

unfortunately i noticed that the plugins are compiled with SSE2 enabled
as well. but since they don't use any SSE2 specific code (so the
binaries will only contain SSE2 code autogenerated by the compiler), i
hope that they will still be runnable under a PIII.
if not, i will have to start a compilation myself :-(
