I use for my apps standard GNUstep GUI, it works fine with the windows
backend, both win32 and cairo compile although I use only the former.

I do however stay away from MSVC and use full gcc and GNUstep.

The final product is easy to ship in a directory where a .exe file can
be launched and the rest of DLLs can reside inside plus some
configuration files.

I had a script working fine for the old mingw, I am in the process of
updating and refining it for msys2. I currently have a full-GUI
application working with files and https connection to webservices both
in 32bit mode and 64bit mode, all packaged inside a directory. The past
release is aincredible improvement and fruit of a lot of work regarding,
with special thanks to Richard.
I will soon also port to the new msys2 its graphing part, which is
display histograms and similar on windows.

I need to refine it a bit further before I can publish the details and

Also StepSync, the file-synchronization tool can run natively on windows
this way, it has a very simple gui made with only standard components
and works fine.
