I found a way to sort that out on windows 7. I have
gtkmm-2.22...-devel installed in my system. Replacing

from gEDA/bin with those in gtkmm/bin, the properties/attributes boxes
show with double click.
(btw, gtkmm binaries for win32 can be found in )

I am aware of how much luck is surely involved in combining different
gtk library versions and getting things working...

Moreover, if I just remove all the gtk related dlls from the gEDA/bin
folder, since gtkmm/bin is included in the windows PATH, gschem (and
gerbv and pcb) works fixing the the double click issue and also using
the windows 7 controls theme -otherwise, at least for me, it used the
default gtk theme as in

Maybe including in the installer one of the gtk win32 runtime
installer could help? Or is that already the way it is done?

It shows for me with gschem 1.6.2 and 1.9.0 in ubuntu. Right clicking
on the drawing area shows a menu (I think it starts with Add
component...). However, it wouldn't do on windows.
