Problem with page setup

I'm having some trouble with GIMP's page setup option. I recetly installed latest version (2.6.11) on a laptop running windows 7 professional. The problem is when i click page setup, nothing happens. The window doesn't appear, and no error is shown. It simply won't open. I tried reinstalling gimp. I even tried an earlier version (2.6.7) but to no avail.

I have two shared printers installed, that work fine from any program, including gimp.
The bottom line is i can print but i can not acces the page setup option.

I looked for an answer onlin but no one seems to have had this kind of problem.

Please help me resolve this issue

RE: Problem with page setup
First of all, thanks for the response.
Unfortunately, it didn't help me identify the problem.

1. In sessionnrc i didn't find it listed.
(session-info "dock" "dock"
(position 1124 28)
(size 210 661)
(show-image-menu "true")
(follow-active-image "true"))
(current-page 0)
(dockable "gimp-layer-list"
(tab-style icon)
(preview-size 32))
(dockable "gimp-channel-list"
(tab-style icon)
(preview-size 32))
(dockable "gimp-vectors-list"
(tab-style icon)
(preview-size 32))
(dockable "gimp-undo-history"
(tab-style icon)))
(position 325)
(current-page 0)
(dockable "gimp-brush-grid"
(tab-style preview))
(dockable "gimp-pattern-grid"
(tab-style preview))
(dockable "gimp-gradient-list"
(tab-style preview)))))
(session-info "toolbox" "dock"
(position 9 54)
(size 160 648)
(current-page 0)
(dockable "gimp-tool-options"
(tab-style icon)))))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-preferences-dialog"
(position 192 62))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-text-tool-dialog"
(position 581 282)
(size 366 342))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-file-save-dialog"
(position 199 52)
(size 890 571))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-scale-tool-dialog"
(position 100 100))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-image-new-dialog"
(position 30 30))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-module-dialog"
(position 25 25)
(size 291 282))
(session-info "toplevel" "gimp-file-open-dialog"
(position 238 89)
(size 890 571))
(session-info "display" "gimp-empty-image-window"
(position 0 24)
(size 1362 706))

(last-tip-shown 15)

# end of sessionrc

2. In print-page-setup the following values appear:
DisplayName=US Letter

3. And when i run gimp in verbose mode and click page setup no messages appear.

I attached the two files you mentioned, maybe you see something that might help.
I'm opened to any other suggestions.

Thanks again.

RE: Problem with page setup
Thanks for your advice.

I've given up trying to figure out why it doesn't work.
I think i'm going to wait for the new version.
