RE: Gimp keeps crashing on Windows 8 coumputer!
Hey,

the dev's probably haven't made gimp 2.8 compatible for win8 yet, but there a few solutions to start up problems already.

It could be a corrupt shortcut path. Try starting gimp from the root directory icon. (the original folder, not the shortcut)

Also check here if that doesn't work
http://gimpforums.com/thread-gimp-2-8-fa...=windows+8

win8 is still fairly new, so maybe in the next gimp it will be more compatible with win8 (fingers crossed ^_^)

Good luck!
