Please help with install of 2.8.2 for Windows 7.
I currently have Gimp 2.6.11 installed on my Windows 7 PC.

I would like to upgrade to 2.8.2. Do I just go to ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.8/ and click on 08/23/2012 08:39PM 53 gimp-2.8.2.tar.bz2.md5?

Also, should I uninstall 2.6.11 first?

Thanks in advance for any help?

RE: Please help with install of 2.8.2 for Windows 7.
You have download the source file for compiling. For an installer go to
http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.htm

AFAIK you do not have to uninstall gimp 2.6, gimp 2.8 uses a different naming convention
So gimp 2.6 installs to C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\
and gimp 2.8 to C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\

Same with your local folder, it is .\gimp-2.6 and .\gimp-2.8

Copy any of your local scripts/plug-ins/other resources from the old to the new.

So just so I am clear. I download the link you posted and then I download the link I posted. Is this correct?

Thanks,

Nope, you are totally confused.

Go to http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html and download the installer

The file you referenced is not required.

That worked great. It automatically erased 2.6 but that is okay as I like the single window 2.8. Thanks for taking the time to help.

Kind regards,
yeto
