Problems during starup of gimp

Postby IronRain » Sun Nov 07, 2010 6:55 pm

Hello everyone,

When I startup Gimp on my Windows 7 32 bit system, I get a lot of errors during the startup screen. It says that it can find the access point in intl.dll. I already tried to start it with administrator rights, but this didn't worked neither.

I hope someone can help me.

Cheers,
Derk

After holding the Enter button for like 5 minutes it does start. Re-installation doesn't work.
It can't find the dll to start the (at least, that's what I think) *.exe files. See attached screen shot for more info. Translation: Header: ''Video.exe - access point not found'' content: "Can't find access point of procedure libintl_setlocale in DLL-file intl.dll"... And that about 100 times with all kinds of *.exe files.

I know it doesn't answer the main problem: how about using Gimp portable for the time being? I believe that it is working in Windows 7 too. As for Gimp not starting, maybe a folder or the exe file is renamed that's why it is not found? I have little idea... :wilber:

IF you are running 2.6.11 ...

Download this set of 2.6.11 default DLL files
http://www.mediafire.com/?o8aaxnvvwcdll27
and place them in you bin folder.Let windows go ahead and overwrite the ones in there. Then just restart Gimp.


IF you are running 2.7 do NOT use these they are completely different library files.

That link should have taken you to the MediaFire page where the download can be found, here is the direct link.

When you tried reinstalling did you delete every single thing related to GIMP?

@Maffe: you're using 2.6.11 or 2.7?

@IronRain: Is the Gimp version you installed 2.6.11? ???
