Ok thanks Michael,
the evironment variable PATH is not unknown for me and now I know what
you mean. In my case the PATH variable is set to C:\Mingw\bin and in
that folder is as already mentioned a very old libpng12.dll. But the
libpng12.dll which apparently caused the error message is inside of the
gtk directory. 

As I told I replaced in the GTK directory  the newer dll with the older
one and the problem was solved but now the newer dll  (in GTK 2.3.13
package) seems to work as well. Strange! 

Should I set up a new PATH variable pointing to the GTK\2.0 directory to
avoid  this error in the future?
