All, I've spent the last night tweaking the Windows build and install processes.
* Switched from GTK + PyCairo + PyGobject + PyGTK to "PyGTK-all-in-one" package; brought the desktop installer package size down to 13.3MB * Desktop installer clears "$PROGRAMFILES/Zim Desktop Wiki" before writing to it. (Otherwise there might be some leftover cruft after the PyGTK-all-in-one change.) * Desktop UNINSTALLER correctly removes user-level and "all users"-level Desktop icon and Start Menu shortcuts (2008, Vista, XP). * Added 256x256 resolution image to zim.ico file for better appearance in Desktop folder (2008, Vista, XP). * Created portable installer package using PortableApps.com tools. Ready to final submit to PortableApps.com after we "go live" with 0.53. * Sorry, I couldn't make any headway on https://bugs.launchpad.net/zim/+bug/830043 "look and feel on windows: default gtk laf is used". Before I officially send Jaap a merge request for these changes, I hope that one or two people could try it out. I'd particularly like to hear from people who do NOT have English as their desktop language. (I couldn't figure out how to change my default language to test it.) Does your chosen language show up in the Zim application UI -- in the DESKTOP and PORTABLE versions? (The desktop installer script itself is not setup for translation, but the payload should be.)

Always backup your data!
