Under Windows 7 Professional 64Bit Gibbon runs but it starts with the error message about not being able to read c:\mingw\share\gibbon\ip2country.csv.gz (The GEO cache data). I have installed Gibbon to the default place C:\Program Files (x86)\Gibbon . If I manually create c:\mingw\share\gibbon and copy the file there it does run.

The c:\mingw\share\gibbon path seems to be a hard coded compile time string, as none of my environment variables or registry entries reference this location.

As an experiment I manually copied the file to the right directory on XP on the hopes the crash would disappear. It doesn't. Just before it crashes I can see the outline of the main window and the GEO cache status window very briefly before they are destroyed as the program terminates.
