Last modified: 2013-12-08 13:35:58 UTC
1 - Install gimp-2.7.5-setup.exe.
2 - Launch GIMP.
3 - GIMP Crash alaway with libgegl-0.1-0.dll
> Install gimp-2.7.5-setup.exe.
From where? Any download URL?
And which system is this about?
Downloaded from (GIMP + GTK+ (development rel.): http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-win/files/
System is Windows XP SP3.
Are there any informations or error messages in the command window?
nothing, console is empty.
issue is probably related with same of this: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=669452#c7
I think I encountered the same bug. I have Windows XP SP3, too. It's running on an (old) Athlon XP. I also read some comments by a user at www.gimpusers.de that he also was not able to start the gimp 2.7.5 and 2.8.0 RC1 at all with an AMD Athlon and Windows XP SP3.
Always it crashes at the very beginning. In the problems report which should be sent to microsoft, the libgegl-0.1-0.dll (gimp 2.7.5) or libgegl-0.2-0.dll (gimp 2.8.0 RC1) is given as "ModName". It seems that there is a problem with the gegl library and the old AMD CPUs.
Hope you can track the bug...

My Prolem is the same as before. My CPU is an AMD Athlon XP 2400+ with 2 GB RAM and Win XP Prof. SP3. This Problem-Report want Windows send.
The screenshot is not helpful as it does not provide any useful information...
I assume you run GIMP 2.8.0 RC1?
Yes 2.8.0 RC1
Gimp 2.6.11 runs very good.
I can reproduce this in a old Pentium III. I also tried in a Pentium 4 (SSE2 instructions), and it worked fine there, so I'm guessing that this is due to something which is compiled with SSE2 flags (libgegl maybe), as only Pentium 4 and above has these.

I was trying GIMP 2.8-RC1 under Windows 7 Pro in the Pentium III computer. The Pentium 4 uses XP SP3.
Same problem with AthlonXP (WinXP SP3 Home) here - crash on startup with same problem-report as August Humann.
Running an AMD Athlon XP with windoze XP SP3 also
Gimp 2.7.5 works fine with my setup
Gimp 2.8.0 rc1 crashes on startup
2.7.5 and 2.8.0 RC1 always crash at startup with (libgegl error), in Athlon XP or AMD Sempron (Socket A) CPUs.
