Thanks. I just filed a bug report. Hopefully that will generate a solution...
While you are waiting for the response/fix.
Have you tried turning off UAC in Vista?
Go to the Control Panel, type UAC in the search(top right).
Turn it off, reboot, then try Gimp again.
If it still fails, then turn it back on, and continue waiting...Wink
Also, you might check the file permissions on the plugins folder, the files within, and the folders above the plugins folder. Check there is read execute permissions for your user account.

The user did a fresh install of the OS (I don't recommend unless you've tried everything else suggested in this thread first. Seems to be a corrupt dll somwhere)

Other things to try before a fresh install(bit drastic):

- Try the build for windows Pick your Bit-depth (32 or 64-bit)
"Right-click computer & properties in the file explorer to find out"

- do a windows update.
- see if you can open the image in windows file explorer (by right-clicking on the image file & "Preview" or open with... "pick a photo program other than Gimp (Paint, ifranview, etc...)
