Gimp gimp-2.8.2-won't work on my comp
I have Win7 64bit and I can't get Gimp to work! I have downloaded several times wasting my bandwidth without success. It loaded onto the comp without installing on my programs listings. I went to the files and opened up the ex file to see if I could get it to work. I had a warning - libgimpmodule-2.0-0.dll is missing - I managed to find a site that downloaded the dll file, then clicked again to see if I could get it working and had another warning of 0xc000007b. I have read on several googled web pages this is a big problem with the latest gimp and 64bit computers. Is there a cure for this as my Ubuntu version is working fine, but that is not the latest version though.

On http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html there is the MD5 Hash for the file you download, if it matches the one you can compute on the downloaded file ('md5sum' on Linux) there is no reason to re-download.

Okay thank you, but its Windows that is my problem. I thought I made that clear. But I shall look for the OLD Windows to put back on. Clearly there are bugs to be sorted out and its NOT stable as stated
