Gimp Not Working - Crashes

Postby Goldfinch » Wed Aug 10, 2011 2:25 pm

Hi, I have been having problems with gimp lately. I have unistalled it all twice and reinstalled and am still having crashing issues.

I used to be able to open a picture to edit, then after a while it would crash.
Now I can't even open a picture, I am just getting the screens down below:


I am on Windows Vista. And the gimp I have installed is the 2.6 off the download button off this page:

I haven't downloaded any extras like brushes or anything, just the main download off the gimp site. Any help will be great as I have no clue whats wrong.

I don't belive you... :P

My reason ? Well, it sais "Ufraw" multiple places:
And ive helped someone with this before! :)
Atleast last time this had nothing to do with gimp, and reinstalling gimp didn't do anything.
I would suggest trying to un install and re-install the problem: UFRaw

The problem is most likely stemming from 2 bzip2 DLL files canceling each other out.
Look in the plug-ins folder in your user directory ie... C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\.gimp-2.6\plugins folder.

If the bzip2 library file is there delete it or remove it from the plugins folder.
That should solve your problem.
