You can download installers for the Gimp help in several languages from there:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-win...taller%29/

This installs the contextual help (Help button in dialogs) but this also works as general documentation that you can browse with a navigator (index.html at top of hierarchy).

Do you end up with a gimp-help.xml somewhere in the Gimp installation?

And if so, what is the full path to it?

I just installed it as the installer itself suggests, wich is C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0

I got just 3 screens the startup wich says what it's going to install and then I can slect the path in the second one and the last windows says the installation was succesfull and that's it Sad

That doesn't answer any of my two questions Smile

And is your Gimp installed in C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0?

RE: Windows XP Gimp_Users ' Who use OFFLine MANUAL ' How do i install it?
Please check (navigate with Windows explorer) that you have the following files & directories:
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\bin
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\bin\gimp-2.6.exe
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\brushes
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help\nl
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help\nl\gimp-help.xml

However, if your Gimp has labels in English (menu items, windows titles, etc...) then it will only look for the English help. In which case, you should install the English help and replace the last two files to check by:
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help\en
  • C:\Program files\Gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help\en\gimp-help.xml

(i.e. "en" instead if "nl").

RE: Windows XP Gimp_Users ' Who use OFFLine MANUAL ' How do i install it?
This is a recurring theme on several forums, and the frequent answer is "well it is working here". Not much help.

The only thing is as Ofnuts said, make sure it is installed in the correct place.

going back to the OP

Quote:Ghimp1 ...could make a small image of the Gimp/Folder where i either place the Manual 2.4.2 Folder

Should not be using gimp-help 2.4 with gimp 2.6.x - the directory structure is a little different but here is a screenshot of 'help 2.6'. "en" will change depending on language.

http://i.imgur.com/9t0cq.jpg

Things to try, as the above screenshot, see if it opens manually. Right click on index.html and see if it works.

Just a theory of mine but I think the problem might be some other application blocking gimp-help. As the above screenshot, Avast flags it launching, so a less transparent anti-malware app might stop it without any warning.

Some other info.
If using F1 to try and bring up gimp-help, have an image open, even a blank one, or you can press F1 until you are blue-in-the-face.
You can unpack the gimp-help-installer manually using uniextractor. Useful if using a portable gimp.
The installer adds a lot of files, currently 2065, to the help folder, but no registry entries or other files.
