On Windows GRAMPS is usually started from the menu entry or a short cut to the same location, that is fine when everything is working. When your system is experiencing the problem described here, trying to start GRAMPS will cause the GRAMPS GUI to never appear, and you will get no user information back about the problem.
In the above example, python was called passing in the script for GRAMPS, this is a complicated test case, so I'd like to try and simplify it to a minimal test case that exhibits the same behaviour. This minimal test case can then be used when testing if changes to the environment have had any effect on the problem. The minimal test case does not even use GRAMPS.
Simply start a python command line.
Output from check_gtk_install.py should be used as a guide to possible issues, it is possible for the script to give the thumbs up, but a problem still exists on the system.
