Unable to compile example program in Windows using MSYS MinGW

Hello everyone,

I am a C beginner and trying to follow "Getting Started" chapter from the documentation. I have adapted the first example program and when I compile it on Windows using packages MSYS and the MinGW(w-64?) GCC compiler it doesn't run.

I get two error dialog boxes (one after the other) and then the program exits without showing any GUI. The errors are:
The procedure entry point deflateSetHeader could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\msys64\mingw64\bin\libgio-2.0-0.dll. 
The procedure entry point inflateReset2 could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\msys64\mingw64\bin\libpng16-16.dll. 
I find these errors to be strange... are the binaries corrupted? I followed all the instructions on the download page for Windows and I have re-installed the packages several times now.

Can anyone guide me in the right direction? There also seems to be a recent issue in the MSYS repository related to my problem.

I am attaching the source code in case if that makes any difference (it is not a 1 to 1 copy from the documentation). I have previously compiled this on my other laptop which runs Fedora and it works well.

Thanks for reading and helping in advance! :)

With Regards, Damon H. (TheDcoder)
