Thats good, there is also the following warning on the GTK download:

"It is possible to use these packages also with Microsoft's compiler.
However, the DLLs here use the msvcrt.dll run-time library. This means that
also applications that use the DLLs should preferably use the msvcrt.dll
run-time. Specifically, this means that you should not use newer versions
of the Microsoft compiler than Visual C++ 6 without knowing exactly what
you are doing."

You were warned :)
