Gif can't save as animaton
When I try to export my gif the only options are help, export, and cancel. There is no box that says 'save as animation'. I've checked \GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins for file-gif-save and file-gif-load and they are both there. I've reinstalled gimp as well. Help?

I'm using windows 7 and gimp 2.8.6

RE: Gif can't save as animaton
I have both files.
On startup I get a message that says 'The procedure entry point g_get_tmp_dir could not be located in the dynamic link library libglib-2.0-0.dll' and one that says 'The procedure entry point g_getreal_name could not be located in the dinamic link libray libglib-2.0-0.dll' Do you think they have any thing to do with it?

It`s a old post but i have had the same Problem in ma old Windows XP. The Problem was solved as i found out that some needed dll`s from Gimp was in the "windows/system32" system folder - but in the wrong version for Gimp. So Gimpt dont use their own libs and don`t save GIF Animations.

The Solution was to copy the files from Gimp lib folder to system32 folder. That is working and i can save animated Gif with Gimp. I have needed hours to find a solution and i don`t know which program has made the libs in the sytem32 folder.
