you must load the "Gem" library before yo ucan use it.
e.g. add it to your startup preferences.
or use [declare -lib Gem].

(it also must be installed in a place where Pd can find it; run Pd in
verbose mode to see where it searches for Gem.dll; check whether this
matches up with where you installed Gem).

the object is called [gemwin], not [-gemwin].

which version of Gem are you using? double check your Pd version :-)

afaik, there is no 64bit version of Pd for w32.
i'm pretty sure that no 64bit version of Gem was ever released for w32
(unlike linux, where this has been working for about 15 years).
this doesn't matter much though, since you can just use the 32bit
binaries of Pd with 32 bit binaries of Gem on a 64bit W32.
