    Hi, maybe someone can help with this.
    Having the issue of opening any file (jpeg, png etc.) with Gimp to be able to work on them.
    Never had any issues until Windows 10 was installed.
    Now this is what I am seeing in Gimp:

    Opening 'C:\Users\Eileen\Desktop\MSHeader1.png' failed:

    Failed to run plug-in "file-png.exe"

    **I also get this second Message :**


    Unable to run plug-in "file-png.exe"
    (C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\file-png.exe)

    Failed to execute child process (Permission denied)

    Have version 2.8.6 , Tried downloaded a newer version and it was stopped in it's tracks. Incompatible software

    Do you have any suggestions Please!

    Thank I will try to reinstall GIMP again , and I had the same issue with google chrome also loading time is very slow & sometime cannot load. At the end i set Edge as default browser , this i can say this time Microsoft had done great job on the web browser. I set google as the start page in Edge and import all the bookmark from google chrome. Edge pretty go in speed of load.

    I purchase a new laptop equip with Window 10 just to test all my software compatibility. Before my main working workstation Window 8.1 switch to Window 10. I no dare to take the risk.
