there is no way that exporting a 2560x1920 image would need to allocate 20,000,000,000 bytes just to export the image and crash because it can't get that much!!! that seems to be the case with me!!! 20gb? something is seriously wrong with the latest version of gimp that needs dealing with by a developer if gimp needs that much memory!

There is nothing wrong with Gimp, it is your Windows installation that is at fault. Have a review of all the applications that you have installed.

...and to all the others that constantly complain of Gimp will not start/work/crashes with error messages, have a look at anything .NET, using a mix of 32/64 bit applications, virus/malware scanners and anything else that Bill Gates has dreamed up.

1) Export to what format? Does it also happen with other formats?

2) How many layers?

3) Any text layers?
