There are two ways to run a self-compiled GnuCash on Windows. The first is to 
create an installer package and install it. This will put the appropriate 
shortcuts in the start menu and on the desktop. You can do this by running after successfully completes. This will create the 
installer package which you can then use to install GnuCash.

The other method is for when you want to run gnucash directly from the build 
location (what you attempted to do). In that case you should use the gnucash-
launcher.cmd script to start GnuCash. This script will ensure that all the 
required libraries are found.
