GAP For 2.8.10 on Win x64?
I installed the 2.6 GAP plugin from this link: http://photocomix-resources.deviantart.c...-135464357 and it doesn't load. Can anyone confirm if the plugin doesn't launch on 64-bit Windows versions?

Thanks,

gingergeist

You should be able to get it to work

Look inside the photocomix zip archive and find the folder ...\GAP.2.6_win\GAP-installer.
In there is the installer Gimp-GAP-2.6.0-setup2.exe about 4 MB
Run that installer

looks like this http://i.imgur.com/LkmeVfl.jpg

When the installer asks for a installation location browse for C:\Program Files\Gimp 2

And it seems to work, I am not into animation and GAP has such a horrible requirement for layer names xxx_00000x.xcf that I wish you best of luck.

Here is good tutorial to compliment the above mehtod if it doesn't work/need more details
*I recommend replacing the "extract to desktop" step with 'to a folder in my documents'
Should be first link "Andrew...installing gap in gimp 2.8..."
