Under My Windows 7 system, I'm using such commands(I put them in a my.gdb script file) to load and register the pretty printers.
I put the libstdcxx folder in the same folder as the my.gdb file.
 

set auto-load safe-path $debugdir;$datadir/auto-load
python
import sys
sys.path.insert(0, '')
from libstdcxx.v6.printers import register_libstdcxx_printers
# load other pretty printers
end


And here is the result of info pretty-printer command

If I remember correctly, there used to be a function call register_libstdcxx_printers() like below:

from libstdcxx.v6.printers import register_libstdcxx_printers
register_libstdcxx_printers (None)

But later, the "register_libstdcxx_printers (None)" is not needed any more.
