Gimp shuts down
Hi all,

My problem sounds a bit odd. Gimp will open and if I don't do any thing on it will remain open and functioning for hours. If I start doing anything on it it sends an error report and shuts down. I even deleted the newest version and downgraded to 2.4.7 and it still did the same thing. Any ideas what to do?

What does the error report say?

My bad... a window comes up that says "gimp-2.6.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." and then it asks if I want to send an error report.

That's the standard Windows messages, so that won't help. Which version of Windows? Where did you download Gimp from? In the folder where Gimp resides, there is a gimp-console.exe. Can you run that? Any suspicious messages?

Windows XP SP3. And I checked gimp-console-2.6.exe and it shows a blank terminal that does nothing. I suppose that's bad, right? I downloaded Gimp from here http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html

They "gimp-console-2.6.exe --verbose" and see if you get more messages.

I can't help you much more, but the author of the gimp-win installers has a "contacts" page:

http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/contact.html

He even gives an e-mail.
