Did you run the install program as Administrator? Right-click on install file and chose "Run as Administrator". Uninstall all previous versions and try downloading a fresh copy of latest GIMP for Windows. Installed just fine on my Vista 64-bit machine.

I would have to say I'm not sure. if i did it as admin, I will give that a shot and see if it works next time I boot windows. I don't use it much at all. I do all my Gimp work on linux but needed to know the right path to the .gimp-2.6 folder for adding brushes, fonts and so on for vista. I have it for XP.

For fonts, see: Where can I get the fonts I'm missing?

For plug-ins, see How do I add new plug-ins?.

Thanks Ron
I just checked this out. I did do un-install and re-install as admin.

Odd thing is, It now works again.

I will read over the link you passed to me also. I play a game in the virtual world of second life , and give Free (Basic) Gimp classes. This is why I am trying to make sure I have everything just right. Its not that big of a deal. I like Linux much more. Keeping the game up and playing while jump across the another desktop to use the Gimp is way better For me.

One thing That would help and I still need to google it is the path to theses files and folders for a Mac. I have a few students using those also.

This is more about Helping people learn to us the Gimp.

You're welcome.

Did you search through the Help files that are available for Mac answers: GIMP help files

GIMP for Mac OS X Recommends using MacPorts to install the libraries.

GIMP User Manual (Many languages supported)

The GIMP Mac forum may have some answers to the paths used on a Mac. Sorry for not being able to answer the question(s) in a more direct manner. My sister has a brand new iMac and I'm not allow to download ANYTHING on it. :)
