GIMP: Installation problems

I have Gimp Portable 2.2.17 installed on my Ativa U3 device, running off of an XPpro system. When I attempt to open a JPG file I am told it is an unknown file type. I do not receive this error with my locally installed copy of 2.2.13. The plug-in folders specified in preferences are "C:\Documents and Settings\user\.gimp-2.2\plug-ins" first and "H:\System\Apps\GIMPPortable\App\gimp\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins" second. I can see the plug-in files in their folders. JPEG.EXE is among them. Also, none of the filters appear in the filters menu, though I can see them in their directory. Scripts folders locations in preferences are like those above. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Could be a corrupted

Could be a corrupted download. Delete the current portable install, and the portable installer, then redownload the installer.

Running Gimp2.4

I've installed Gimp Portable 2.4 twice on my Memory Stick. I keep getting this message:
NSIS Error: Error launching installer.

Anyone else getting this message? I'm unable to open the program. Any thoughts?

No problem with earlier versions.

Thanks in advance.
