      Using "did" suggests to me (a native English speaker, lucky me!)
      that it did not woek "for a short time" but then it started working
      again. I assume you mean that the menu entries "have not worked," that
      is, they are still broken.

      Not really, but maybe I can help you diagnose it. After the menu
      entry has been defined, what does

      :menu Resourcen.Menu\ GUI.gvim\ Source\ Menu

      tell you? (See :help :redir for how to record vim's response.)
