Thanks for the feedback.
How exactly did you run gnucash ?
I think the whole windows build system is set up to create a Windows installer
for the gnucash package and run gnucash after this installer has run.
On the other hand, if simply running the glib-compile-schemas on the end
result of the build script helps you run it without invoking the Windows
installer, that's a worthwile bonus.
I *thought* we did run this while building, but a quick scan of the build
scripts suggest it's only run while bundling gnucash. I wonder why that is.
Perhaps John remembers.
