When I try to open the BasiliskIIGUI.exe I get errors saying things like 'The program can't start because libglib 2.0-0.dll is missing from your computer'

I have the recommended GTK installed and I have everything required in the setup guide. I am on Windows 10 x64

  • glib is one of the low level libraries needed by GTK, so very likely your GTK installation is not complete.

I've found that many programs requiring glib on Windows don't always find the installation directory that GTK installs to. I'm not sure if it is the GTK installer or the individual programs themselves; haven't looked at this in a while.

While you could update your PATH at the system level to include that directory, you could also cheat and just copy it to the directory where Basilisk II's .exe is residing.
