Problems with GIMP 2.8.10 on windows 8 64-bit
I have recently experienced problems with my GIMP imaging program. I have uninstalled and re-downloaded numerous of times. I have covered all the basic troubleshooting steps and a few complex ones. I am at a loss to explain what is happening. Every time I attempt to start the program the corresponding windows open, and it shows it's, in fact, loading. However, near the end of the loading I receive a message saying there was a problem.

Yes, It say's there was a problem. Simple as that. There is no elaboration on the matter. It them prompts me to close the program by which windows will notify me if there is a solution.

I have yet to receive a notification. It has been an entire month! I am growing restless. I have URGENT work that I need to take care of.

COULD ANYONE HELP ME? I NEED TO GET GIMP UP AND RUNNING A.S.A.P!

I have spent all of 20 minutes here, and I have found my answer.

The program is now up and running.

Thanks, guys and gals. Big Grin

For future reference to others & for maybe a quicker response, don't presume that we know all the things you tried to get it working. I'd recommend listing all the ways you can remember you tried so we can suggest methods you've left out, somethings bound to work ^_^
Plus it saves having to wait for a reply asking what you've tried.
