The following is what I get when I run gnucash.cmd from Dos Shell.  It 
looks like the Path has changed and added some duplicates that I didn't 
install.  Previously I had subscribed to the user but not the devel  
mail list which I have now corrected.  I don't understand the other 
comments  so I hope you can help.
