GAP Plugin error windows 8.1gap_ decode_mplayer.exe entry point not found.
Hello Gimpers, I have a brand new Gimp 2.8.14 install on Windows 8.1 to which I have added the GIMP_Extensions_v2.8_latest.

Since install I am getting the following error at startup: gap_ decode_mplayer.exe entry point not found.

also see attachment.

Can someone help me fix this.

I believe this is just a case of windows 8 relocating install locations, but I cant figure out exactly what goes where. Thanks.

RE: GAP Plugin error windows 8.1gap_ decode_mplayer.exe entry point not found.
There was an earlier post with a similar error message involving g_get_home_dir_utf8. Looks like some old plugins need to be recompiled. Since GAP falls into the old category (Gimp 2.6 at best) that could be the problem.

Apart from that, I just installed GAP into a Win 8.0 32 bit VM with Gimp 2.8.10 and it starts up ok with the usual flicker of message boxes but no out-and-out error messages.

Is your Win 8.1 64 bit? When you installed GAP and it asks for location did you point it at
C:\Program Files\GIMP 2. Really I am just guessing, need someone with a Win 8.1
