Gimp portable will not start
I have Gimp portable 2.6 and have used it a lot on Windows XP. Now I have a box with Windows 7 on it and, well, it failes to start.

It come up with "gimp2-6.exe has stopped working" and gives me the option to debug. I go the the "Visual Studio Just-In-time debugger' and the message is "An unhandled win32 exception occurred in gimp-2-6.exe [448]" but am stuck there.

What can I do to make gimp portable work on Windows 7???

Thanks
F

I would try redownloading it with all Default Settings and how bad is this computer? Like is there a really small amount of RAM? That might also give you problems because there wouldn't be enough to handle GIMP.

Try to use gimp-console with the "--verbose" parameter and see if theere are ny more explcict error messages. Otherwise suspect a damaged Gimp user profile.

RE: Gimp portable will not start
If you are saying that it has never worked on the Win 7 system, you may have a script or plugin that is old and not compatible with the new OS. You could try moving all of your scripts and plugins to a temporary folder and then see if it starts up. If it does, replace them a few at a time until you can narrow down the one that causes the crash. Once you find it, you can check the developers web site or search for it on the Gimp plugin registry and see if there is a newer version that works under 7.
