Gimp starts then doesn't run
Sorry if this is the wrong forum...

Gimp was working fine for some time but after an installation of MS Visio 2003 it stopped. Currently when I launch Gimp I see the banner graphic but the application does not appear. When I check the task manager there's no entry for Gimp either.

I have uninstalled Gimp, rebooted, downloaded another install image and installed it to no avail. I've checked the event viewer and do not see any related errors listed.

I'm running Windows XP SP3.

Any ideas?

RE: Gimp starts then doesn't run
AFAIK the Windows version also comes with a "gimp-console" executable. Start it and see if you get any strange messages.

And where do you get your install images? Which Gimp version do they install?
