Today a forum member asked about why GIMP’s help keeps crashing on Windows.
I went into my Windows 2008 VPS and tried to use F1 and was able to see the same error in GIMP 2.10.12.
It complained something about failure on
I was brainstorming on how I can work around this problem. GIMP 2.8.22 never had this problem.
So what I was thinking if I can get it to work like GIMP 2.8.22 then it should be good.
My initial plan was just to see if the .exe in GIMP 2.10 was
I then installed renamed GIMP 2 as GIMP 2
Turns out I didn’t need the help.exe files from 2.8 at all…..but the installing of 2.8 managed to fix the HELP error maybe
I then went in renamed the GIMP 2 (which is now 2.8.22) to GIMP 2.8
and renamed the GIMP 2 bak back to GIMP 2
then restarted GIMP 2.10.12 and the Help started to work.
I was really happy with this workaround (it made my day more fruitful).
My guess is users who have previously had 2.8 installed on
