Gecko# *can* work on Win32. The issues are with GTKMozEmbed, as the C#
bindings simply invoke the C library. I used it last July with no
problems, and I think I used the runtime from
though I can't really remember much about it now, having mostly
switched to Linux.

Though there don't appear to be any recent updates, there is ongoing
work in this area:

I don't know of any .NET bindings for GTK 1. Though confusingly named,
GTK# 1.0 is a binding to GTK+ 2.

Try the above Gecko runtime -- you'll have to bundle one anyway, and
hopefully a newer one will be released soon.
