Apparently MinTTY requires this DLL.

Q: Should my system (Windows 7) have this DLL? (Is it present
    on your system?)

Yes. It is located in WinSxS, as many other versioned DLL's.
I.e. on my system, MinTTY loading
C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft.windows.gdiplus_6595b64144ccf1df_1.1.7601.24280_none_145e10148b8de48e\gdiplus.dll

Thanks for the feedback, Andrey!

Yes, I have that file too. The output of 'ls -l' shows:

WinSxS/\
amd64_microsoft.windows.gdiplus_6595b64144ccf1df_1.1.7601.24280_none_145e10148b8de48e/\
gdiplus.dll

gdiplus.dll

(yes, I broke each line up in multiple ones for readability)

The first "1" on the line that is output bij "ls", indicates it is not "hard
linked" to a version in c:/Windows/system32.

Michael Wild reported a version of GdiPlus.dll in c:/Windows/system32 on his
system. So, I expect "his" system shows a "2" here ...

Btw, I do not think that the "loss of GdiPlus.dll" on my system explains why
I cannot start MinTTY with Corinna's latest cygwin1.dll ...

I believe something else is preventing the launch of MinTTY using the latest
cygwin1.dll ...
