First thing to do when Gimp is having errors:

Download again, then reinstall. Tell us if that fixed it.

Okay, does your Dad have GIMP installed? Has he had it installed? Do you both have the same opperating system?

And my guess is, is that the Path wasn't created, because you don't have admin permissions

i installed gimp on my dads computer (without him knowing) and set the download path to my usb.
after it finished installing i tried it and it worked, it worked with his computer(windows 7). i unhooked my usb and then put it on my computer (windows xp) i thought about this but is there a way to download the windows xp version on a windows 7?

*is amazed it worked off USB*

I would suggest that you get the portable version off your Dad's computer and put it on your flash drive and then put that on your computer. The only setback is that Python will not be easy to install, but talk to Rod about that, I am pretty sure he got it working

(my usb is my ipod :P)

Thanks for your time and patience but i seem to have figured it out on how to work it.
i took all the .dll files from the bin folder and put it in the lib>gimp>2.0>plugin folder and suprisingly it worked.
I seem to have a feeling on this forums (kinda strange) but i am going to stick around here and help and learn about gimp. thanks for your time
goodnite :D

good to see you got it working!

I have a feeling Rod will notice this thread and then come up with a secondary solution... he has a tendancy to do that! :P But we all love him for his knowledge ;D

Hmm, thats a tough one, The only way I know how to is adding them into your Computer's Fonts, and I think that needs admin permissions.

Why don't you just get Admin permissions :)
