Over the holidays I investigated how to cross-compile GTK applications for Windows, and managed to port screen-message. I also created an Inno Setup based installer for it that includes the necessary GTK DLLs. You can grab it from the screen-message homepage. The installer optionally binds screen-messages to the key combination Alt-Ctrl-S.
I would have published the binary much earlier if starting the application had not always given the error message
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b). Click on OK to terminate the application.
on Windows, while it worked fine under WINE. It took me a while to find the cause, as there seems to be only one mention of it in the internet: One must not use MinGW’s strip.exe utility on DLLs not created with MinGW, it seems.
I added a “make installer” target to the Makefile to create the installer. If you are curious about how that works, have a look at the source.
