RandomGuy,

That dll usually lives in C:\Program Files\Gimp-2.0\bin\

Try to search for (include hidden files) libgimpui-2.0.0.dll find it and that were libgimp-2.0.0 belongs. If for some reason you can't get the upgrade to work, try uninstalling your current version before you upgrade. **** REMEMBER to back up any files you want to keep. I would move my pictures to a directory that will not be effected by the uninstall.

Best of luck

It keeps saying

" The procedure entry point gimp_plugin_menu_register could not be located in the dynamic link library libgimp-2.0-0.dll" The same thing goes for "libgimpbase-2.0-0.dll"

I don't know what else to do.

I've un-installed it but it keeps saying that.

Random Guy,

It's hard to help with a problem without some more complete details, try something like I did this and I've copied over that in this dir., and I could not find this file when I search. I uninstalled and cleaned the reg with regedit, etc. It's especially hard to help with windows problems because of the lack of real info from the OS.

From the discription you've provided I would get a new copy of gimp 2.4.5 from this http://gimp-win.sour...net/stable.html
If your not sure you have a good copy run and md5 tool and compare it to the correct md5 sum which is: f8e4b146019d734db0783c7a228808d8
Uninstall your old version so your starting fresh.
Also before you go about installing the new version turn off any anti-virus apps you have running at that time.

good luck

Karl

I've tried all of that, I don't know what else to do...

What do you mean by MD5 Tool? MD5 Sum?

RandomGuy,

I did a search online and found this link discussing a similar problem:

http://gug.sunsite.d.../?threadid=3967

Here was the fix from one of the posts:

Quote

What I did to overcome the problem was to copy many dll files (libgimpbase, libgimpui, libgimp, libgimpcolor, libgimpmodule, libgimpwidgets) from the bin directory to the plugin directory.

i.e. copy all those dlls from GIMP-2.0\bin to GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins

Finally, that solved the problem.


There is also this link:

http://joseolivos.com/2007/12/

You can go to the section titled: "Gimp 2.4.2 Error" (towards the bottom of the page)

There is a discussion about an entry point error message, but for a different iconv.dll. Don't know if the general fix there for that DLL file might relate to the DLL file you are having issues with.

I don't know if any of this will help, since I do not use Windows, but throwing it out for you in case it can help you somehow.

:h:
