Where is GIMP 2.7.1's main exe?
My OS is Windows 7 home premium, 32-bit version, USA english language edition.

I downloaded GIMP 2.7.1 (yes, I know it's a beta), & have installed it. However, I can't find it's main .exe file. (I had a hard time finding it in 2.6.11 too.)

Assuming you have it installed Right

Start, Computer, Program Files, GIMP 2.7, Bin, GIMP-2.7

Hope this helps,
Willy

I looked for the bin folder, but I can't find it. (For some reason, I had to MANUALLY install it, probably because of my OS.)

I have searched in the whole thing now, & not only does the one that I downloaded not have a bin folder, it doesn't even have one single exe file (I clicked the type button to make the search easier). I'm wondering if my OS (see my 1st post) is the problem, because I've read that it's easier for linux OS'es.

Where did you download GIMP 2.7.1 from? I downloaded it from
ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.7/

& downloaded this file.
gimp-2.7.1.tar.bz2

OK, I've emailed that one site to tell them to add a sentence saying that those versions are for linux, & have downloaded gimp 2.7.2 from
http://partha.com/
After installing a lot of dll's, gimp now gives me this error message.

"The procedure entry point gimp_drawable_preview_new could not
be located in the dynamic link library libgimpui-2.0-0.dll."

I already have that dll & the others that it wanted, which I downloaded from
http://www.dlldump.com/
Any suggestions?

I can't believe this. I posted about this at the site where I downloaded 2.7.2 from, & I uninstalled & installed 2.6.11 (from http://www.filehippo.com) until I get this problem fixed. But when I installed 2.6.11 (which I never had problems with before) I get this error message when I try to run it.

"The procedure entry point gimp_window_set_transient could not be
located in the dynamic link library libgimpui-2.0-0.dll."

Any idea what's going on now (this is starting to be a version-independent problem).

O had the same problem and ended up here looking for help. Turns out, I downloaded only the install file for the manuals.
