Hi there, Seems the Gimp 2.6.6 is buggy on W7. I'd been forced to uninstall 'cause it won't launch and crashed.

I suspect the library brushes, gradient that install in users documents instead of programs/gimp/ bring the mess when charging the gimp,
even when i do change in properties the way it search.

I haven't re-install yet but twice time was buggy, on 7100 & 7137.

sorry to quote, but took the last post to let you know it.

Hi NoN,

It seems that for Gimp to work properly in Windows 7 now, you must check Run this program as an administrator in Compatibility Mode for this program's shortcut after it is installed.

They have a 2009 Freeware pack, which includes some great free apps which include:

  1. Notepad ++
  2. Firefox
  3. 7-Zip
  4. Revo Uninstaller
  5. Fences
  6. TerraCopy
  7. Foxit Reader
Just a few to add to your list
