That is just not how you ship stuff on Windows unfortunately, there is
no apt/zypper/yum like thing for Windows (though MS seems to be
working on that apparently).

tml and myself went through this problem again and again, even if
GTK+'s API is stable, guaranteeing GTK+'s ABI on Windows is just
impossible for several reasons, a common GTK+ runtime is just not the
way to go. Easing the bundling process of Gtk+ into a windows
app/installer, and reducing the amount of dependencies is the way to
