GIMP not working!

Hi everybody,

I still have the same problem which is described under the post "[Fixed] GIMP Portable 2.6.11 does not open other file types then XCF".

  • https://portableapps.com/node/25198
  • I already posted there but since no one was answering I thought maybe it's because it says it's "FIXED" but it isn't ...

    If I drag files to GIMP the message appears:

    Plug-in crashed: "file-jpeg.exe"
    (X:\PortableApps\GIMPPortable\App\gimp\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\file-jpeg.exe)
    
    The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.

    If I try to open a file via File/Open it only shows .xcf files.

    I deleted and installed several times now the new version GIMP Portable 2.6.11 Rev 3 and also the old version GIMP Portable 2.6.10. Still the same error ...

    Could anyone help? What can I do?

    THANX!

    Hello, I can confirm your

    Hello,

    I can confirm your problem "File types missing in open file (again)".
    This problem is still existent - OS: German WinXP Professional SP 3 with all MS Updates.

    Maybe it's a file called 'intl.dll' in the directory 'C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32'. I have renamed this DLL to 'intl.dll.bak' and all seems to be good. But this file is necessary for another installed program, otherwise this program doesn't start. You can also find this file in the gimp-bin-directory ... perhaps it's a "confusion" with the path-variable?

    Hopefully this information helps to fix this problem.

    stb

    ps: sorry for my poor english.

    Move It

    You can move that file to the directory of the app that needs it and it should still work. It should not be in Windows\System32 or it will negatively affect multiple apps both local and portable (it will also affect an installed copy of GIMP for example. Only a few outdated apps with poorly-written installers place that file in System32.

    Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

    Sorry for my late reply ...

    Sorry for my late reply ... thanks for your help!

    The problem is that I'm using (or trying to use ...) GIMP on different computers. I'm at the moment in China and in different internet cafes, sometimes it works, apparently there is no such "confusion", sometimes it doesn't.

    I tried to rename the "intl.dll" file, but I still couldn't open any files. After restarting the computer the file is called "intl.dll" again.

    So I still can't work with GIMP ... annoying ... are there any other solutions you could think of?

    Thanks,
    miki

    Nope

    There is no workaround that I know of as we already set the PATH in the launcher to only include GIMP itself. I'm guessing Windows XP doesn't handle the side by side DLL issues as well and these computers have some very old (over a decade) software on them to cause the issue.
