the zlib dll is. The rest is (as far as I know) used directly in the
application code.

I think iconv is only used to get W:H on images, needed for the rendering.

or somewhere included in PATH. I have my dll in a c:/cmd directory.

We dont copy the exe files for the packages, only .lib, .h and .dll

I think you need to rebuild your tree (cmake -G), seems as if you dont run
with the latest VC solution.

Download is only temporary, everything we need is copied to externals/lib
/include /bin
