the loader finds the gem.dll alright, but the next line it says: "couldn't
load", nothing more.
seems it finds something wrong with the dll.
to test i replaced the 'original' dll in pd/extra/Gem with the build one.
i tried on different machines, different Pd's (42.5 & 43.1).
did build from git.../pd-gem/Gem and also from the release of 93.3.
always the same result.
(building is done on a P4)

if not, i will have to start a compilation myself :-(
if it's only about me and the GEM patch i'm trying to run on the PIII's:
i just saw:
by accident on one of the PIII's i have PdX-42.5 with Gem 92.3 compiled for
the patch works with jpg files.
half of it goes well.
what doesn't is a pix_alpha which creates a partly transparent window
inside the GEM-window, like a frame around a picture.
i'm thinking about a work-around for that.
i'll let you know as soon as i have it.
then there's no urgency for a SSE2-less Windows version.

thanks sofar
