GIMP 2.10 File Directory

I did a clean install of GIMP 2.10 Portable yesterday. When I try to open a file in another drive in the file directory, there is no response. I have to open up windows file explorer and drag and drop the file I want to use to the GIMP file directory and create a bookmark the file if I want to close and reopen GIMP. The directory worked fine in previous versions. I completely uninstalled the old version of Gimp from Portable Apps. Is a fix in the future for this problem?

Not Here

I'm not seeing that behaviour here.

To confirm, when you say you uninstalled the old version - did you delete the GIMPPortable directory, or how did you uninstall?

GIMP 2.10 Filr Browser

I uninstalled by using the uninstall function from portable apps by right clicking on the app on the main menu. I uninstalled after I updated to the new version originally because it would crash on startup. After I did that, I reinstalled it and everything seemed to work OK except for trying to open files by the browser.

Details

Please provide some details so we can try to reproduce: " include system details (OS version, 32 vs 64-bit, install path, new vs upgrade, etc)."

I am running Windows 10 64bit

I am running Windows 10 64bit build 1803 clean install 5-1-18. AMD FX-4350 Quad core Processor. 8GB Ram. I have Portable Apps located on a separate partition on the same hard drive that windows is installed. I have 2 other hard drives for data. I uninstalled Gimp a third time and re-installed via Portable Apps menu & got the same results. I download a portable version from www.partha.com and extracted it to my portable apps partition along side the other apps. I started this version of Gimp and I was able to open a file as normal

Path

I still need the full path you are attempting to run from. GIMP has issues with specific paths.

Side note: I can't reproduce this issue on Windows 10 x64 or Windows 7 x64.

Path and Language

As mentioned above, please specify the full path you have it installed to. Example X:\PortableApps\GIMPPortable. And what language Windows is set for. Without this information I can't reproduce your issue and fix it.

I have installed it in several locations:

I have also installed it on the desktop.

This happens to me on three computers, two of them 64 bits and one of 32. In all cases with w10

It seems that this this is a GIMP problem from looking at Gimp-Forum.net and other user forums. Bug 795855 on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=795855.

Language

What language is Windows in? It seems the user experiencing the bug in their forum is also using something other than English. It could, perhaps, be a non-English-specific bug or language-specific bug with handling of some specific characters.

recently-used.xbel and gtkfilechooser.ini

Could someone with this issue either post the contents of their recently-used.xbel and gtkfilechooser.ini files in the forums or, if you're worried about privacy of your local paths, email it to the developers email address on the Contact page, please? I'm going to see if it's something we can troubleshoot on our end in addition to the GIMP devs. You can find these in your GIMPPortable\Data\settings directory after you've run it and accessed File - Open and/or File-Save I believe.
