This seems to be the only place to get these "ezwinports" that I never
needed before. When you download it it just provides libcrypt. If you go
into files:

There is no libiconv. It mentions it, and links to a mingw port of it. I
have this already though. Maybe its late in the day but should I find it
odd.. adding a library to the PATH?

In summary, this just does not work. Even when I do add the path to the
downloaded iconv: libiconv-2.dll I still get the same unhanded exception.

Looking at the two version 24.3 Vs 24.5 I cannot see anything that has
changed. So why the need for libiconv all of a sudden.

This, to me, seems like a regression of sorts.
