In this version I don't provide alone windows_czkawka_gui.exe file, because too many users failed to install dependencies on Windows.
To be able to use windows_czkawka_gui.exe file alone, extracted from windows_czkawka_gui.zip, you need to install gtk3 from https://github.com/tschoonj/GTK-for-Windows-Runtime-Environment-Installer/releases
