Sad Gimp won't start on Seven x64
Hi, i did not find the support/help forum Undecided

Computer : Dell studio 1745
Windows Seven x64
GIMP 2.6.11 – Installer for Windows XP SP2 or later from : http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

When i do launch Gimp, nothing happens...

What can i do ? i tried to google it and found nothing.

Tried uninstal -> new instal, same problem.
Tried Launch compability windows xp sp2, same problem.

Tried to launch gimp with sandbox and i have this error message :
Instruction 0x75a5ed9b use memory adress 0x0284fc56. memory can't be status "read"

Maybe it's because of sandbox, i have no error message when i try to launch gimp the normal way.

RE: Problem with Gimp
When you start gimp-console.exe, any nasty-looking messages?

http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html has a Gimp 2.6.12 package that also contains a 64-bit version. It's labelled "unstable" out of sheer modesty.

PS: I took the liberty to rename the thread to something more specific.

OK, so that's not the infamous DLL-from-HP problem. Try another version, from one of the source above.
