Thanks, Sivaram. I have installed files you suggested above and added lines to
.gnus, restarted emacs, and now gnus is much slower (long wait on black
hourglass within Emacs. dynamic-library-alist shows same as before with older
versions of dlls. My box is also win7 laptop (64-bit). I'm assuming that all
this 32bit stuff will work since I think Emacs itself is still only 32 bit.
Anyway now gnus is not even usable as newsreader so I am posting via newsguy web
direct. I don't want to undo what I've done and will start reading the whole
gnus manual to see if I can get more insight into what is going on. Anyway I am
not able to see where the old dll's are coming from. Is it necessary to restart
w32 itself? There is a 493k libXpm.dll in the emacs.exe subdirectory
(\emacs\bin). Is that supposed to be there?
