Gimp Crashes On Startup
#11
@ Rich, I'm unsure of if I have a third-party clipboard installed, but I will be giving Gimp Portable a go!

@ Ofnuts, I do often keep text in my clipboard as I do a lot of creative writing/typing throughout the day. I tried to copy a few small images to my clipboard and then opened Gimp with no change.

Before I tried anything else, I installed Gimp Portable and it launched without a hitch! It seems to be running smoothly and doing what I need it to do (opening PSDs with groups/folders as I primarily use Photoshop Elements which can't do these things).

Thank you both so much for your help and time! I truly appreciate it. I'll test these other suggestions, and if nothing seems to work, at least we know Gimp Portable does. :]

Had the exact same problem with Gimp not starting in windows 10. Same error message. 
Solved it by starting Gimp without fonts, then quitting and re-started normally -- For me all fixed

To start with no fonts
1. use the file browser to go to the gimp installation at C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin
2. in the search bar type     cmd       and a terminal will open up
3. type            gimp-2.8.exe -f
4. press enter

this starts gimp without fonts. I closed gimp and restarted gimp again from the startup icon and all is well. Hope this solves the problem for others
