    Okay, G'MIC crashes on me with Gimp 2.8...
    Other than that, everything works like a charm :)

    Arzo are you using 32 bit or 64?
    I use 32 bit and GMIC works perfectly for me as well as all my Adobe plugins and MathMap.
    I even have themes working in it. ;)

    I just tried installing 2.8 on my Win7 64bit laptop and not only did the installer remove my previous version of Gimp - it failed to install 2.8! :eek:
    So I am now without any Gimp. Never used it much anyway so this has just given me a good excuse to get rid of it. Give me Paint.Net every time.

    I just popped back to see if there might be any solutions to this problem or if anyone else had had the same problem. I might even have been tempted back . But not after this reaction. Just because I didn`t post much didn`t mean I was not visiting the forum regularly to keep up with all the news about Gimp. In fact I was looking forward to trying out 2.8 , with all the new features hopefully giving me a good reason to start using the program more . A more positive reaction to my problem might have made all the difference. But this is far from positive.

    SO STFU TOO MAFFE! :p

    @Rod:
    Windows XP 32 bit

    Some error messages, then a prompt window telling me GMIC couldn't start. I don't think I'll have to fix it any time soon though.

    Yeah i know, the reason i got so many posts is because i constantly checked in here and had nothing else to do.
    But i respect the people of "my age" and older with the title of "ancient" :p

    I have the utmost respect for anyone using the forum, not just `ancients' (off which I am one myself unfortunately - time waits for no man as they say!). I was just a bit disappointed that all I got was replies going on about how few posts I had made rather than any help to get 2.8 working. As it happens a friend suggested installing Gimp Portable 2.8 , which I did. It has installed perfectly and Gimp is now back on the laptop and I am looking forward to trying out the new features.
