ERROR: file-mng.exe has stopped working
I have Windows7 Ultimate 32bit and GIMP 2.6.11. When I open GIMP, i get this message: "file-mng.exe has stopped working"
Isn't this the manager for the plugins? What can I do to avoid this error? I read somewhere that BitDefender can produce this, so I put file-mng.exe on exception list, but no effect.

Thank you.

RE: ERROR: file-mng.exe has stopped working
file-mng.exe is the plugin to load/save images in the (fairly esoteric) MNG format.

When Gimp starts it runs all executables in its plug-ins registry so that they can register themselves to the Gimp core. Obviously file-mng crashes in the process. See if the file looks damaged (significantly smaller/bigger than other file-* plug-ins, or with a different date), and if so reinstall (you may have other damaged plug-ins anyway)

You can also rename it to change its extension (file-mng.exe.disabled), so that Gimp won't even try to run it (you lose support for MNG, but I doubt you'll notice).

Well, i renamed it and now it doesn't makes me problems.
The file is 73.7Kb, i don't know if this should be its size, but as I never used MNG files, i guess I will not miss it Big Grin
