I can reproduce the missing dll issue and will come up with a fix soon. From later replies to this thread it would seem that the blank screen issue has to do with startup errors (based on your *~/.textadept/init.lua*). I suspect if you created a shortcut to textadept-curses.exe that passed a '-u tmp' parameter (set _USERHOME to a local 'tmp' directory), it would start up properly.

Regardless, as I mentioned in a followup, I will look into why an error message is not reported on startup.
