RE: Gimp keeps crashing on Windows 8 coumputer!

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

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

Good luck!
