I downloaded the Windows binary for Grass 6.4.3RC3 (dated April 20, 2013, available on http://grass.osgeo.org/grass64/binary/mswindows/native/) and installed it on my Windows PC (6-4 bit, running Windows 7).
I got the following error message on start-up.
Starting GRASS ...

Error in GUI startup. If necessary, please
report this error to the GRASS developers.
Switching to text mode now.
Hit RETURN to continue...
I also tried with the most recent WinGRASS binary snapshot: 6.4.3svn-r56225, and got the same result.
I also tried download and installing the most recent binary snapshot of winGRASS 7: r56229, and that wouldn't start at all.
I have winGRASS 6.4.3 RC2 working fine on my PC. A previous binary snapshot of winGRASS 7 (about a month old) was also working fine, but I uninstalled it to install the most recent version.
I appreciate any ideas you have on what might be going wrong.
