Hi all

I am quite new to the mailing list so first thing I'd like to say is
hello, congratulations and thank you for this great piece of software
that geda is.

I just wanted to drop a quick email to say that I have tried the
windows installer and it installed with no issues on windows 7 (64
bit). I opened gerbv gschem and pcb and everything looked in place
-Im not really a windows user, so I have no projects at hand right
now. I placed some components on gschem and made some nets, it looked

The main issue I had is that (gschem) double click on an object does
not open the usual 'properties' or 'attributes' dialog. Also, right
clicking on the main drawing area doesn't open the contextual menu for
me (maybe some gtk events need to be explicitely masked in the gtk
port for windows?).

Also, although not looking very important, there are some warnings on
the console window (gschem):

> Invalid path [C:\Programas\gEDA\gEDA\share\gEDA\sym\local] passed to component-library
> WARNING: The RC file function 'sort-component-library' is deprecated.

> RC configuration functions will be removed in an upcoming gEDA release.  Please use configuration files instead.

> WARNING: The RC file function 'paper-size' is deprecated and does nothing.

(note C:\Programas\gEDA is my installation folder)
