Does anyone know if the libraries concerned are bundled with the GnuCash 
installer or are part of XP itself?

Asking because if it is the GnuCash installer, the problem might be with 
the more recent versions of these libraries, and an older version might 
work... and also, an older version may be more lightweight which would suit 
my needs.

Thanks in advance,
