Using Windows
Use the Windows uninstaller to uninstall Gimp
Delete anything remaining in C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\
Delete the Gimp user profile if there is one C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10
Get the latest Gimp from http://www.gimp.org (If you are using a VPN the one you have might be corrupt. The Gimp developers provide a hash sum on the download page)
Install Gimp
Try again.

Sorry for not replying sooner, I thought that I had right away but apparently it didn't actually post so that is unfortunate.

I appreciate you taking the time to reply and try to help with my issue.

I had not previously had gimp installed on this system so there would not have been remnants from any previous installation.

After I installed gimp and experienced this issue, I attempted what you suggested before I ever came to this forum to ask for help.

I cannot seem to find much info specific to what I am running into and it is rather frustrating.

Any other ideas?

Not really, Never worked for you, still does not work after a reinstall, probably never going to work for you.

Try a portable version. https://samjcreations.blogspot.com/2021/...28_16.html

That avoids any conflicts from the regular install and contains its own Gimp profile folder. Start it with one of the language launchers that come with it.

Might work.
