I used GimpPortable in my windowsXP computer and it was good. I have now another computer (a new one), with Windows7 but GimpPortable will not run. It loads halfway, and then it crashes. I have tried an older version as well as the current version (2.6.10 rev2), with similar disappointing results. It seems like another fellow had the same problem with Gimp and Gimp Portable:

Post subject: GIMP and Vista - Not Responding
PostPosted: Mon Feb 09, 2009 6:06 am
... I have had Vista and GIMP for over a year and have not had a major problem 'til now.
I started with 2.2, then moved up to 2.4.5, and about a month ago, went to 2.6. No problems. However, starting today, no version of GIMP will work on my computer. They will start and then stall went in notifies its loading Fonts. Then it says that the program is not responding. It even does this with the portable version. ...
Has anyone experienced a similar event or know of a fix?
(It is not crucial that I can't use Gimp, but I do like it. It has some unique features.)
Thanks for your time, Sincerely,
