GIMP crashing upon launch
Whenever I try to launch GIMP, the startup window always freezes while loading 'Modules'.

Edit: I've read a lot about new drivers but not really what about them causes this problem, let alone how to fix it. Might have something to do with the crash considering I bought new headphones recently.

Edit #2: Apparently opening the drivers and restarting my computer made GIMP work again. Not really sure how, but it's fixed now I guess?

Nothing appears to be weird in your output traces including the loading/unloading sequence.
The last unloaded module is libdisplay-filter-high-contrast.dll followed by INIT: gui_restore_callback
However after the series of clipboardParsing sessionrc is never reached.

Next time that Gimp fails:

  1. Pay attention to the displayed last module during the start;
  2. Add command-line options such as --stack-trace-mode=always in the Gimp shortcut at the next attempt;
  3. Try miscellaneous other command-line options such as --no-fonts to reduce the running context.
  4. Make a backup of your Gimp profile then restart without any profile.

Thank you very much for the useful information
