There is a way, involving renaming profile folders etc which I'm sure someone will repost ITT. But I thought I'd mention that I've installed the portableapps portable version of 2.8 alongside my regular install of 2.10 and I find this arrangement very convenient, without any hassle or conflicts.

In Windows, for permanent installations.

The logic is.

If Gimp 2.10 installer finds a Gimp 2.8 installation it considers it an update and will install to the same location as Gimp 2.8 Usually C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\ and you have no choice as to location.

No good just deleting the old Gimp 2.8 installation, the details are still in the Windows registry and Gimp 2.10 will not install.

If you just have a Gimp 2.8 installation and want to keep it.

Edit the Windows Registry to remove the Gimp 2.8 uninstall information. Use the Gimp 2.10 installer, use the customise option, install to a location such as C:\Program Files\GIMP 210\ using the customise option with the installer

example https://youtu.be/dRsk29KPez4 about 5 minutes.

There are variations on this. Backup Gimp 2.8 folder, Uninstall Gimp 2.8, Install Gimp 2.10 to C:\Program Files\GIMP 210\ Restore Gimp 2.8 backup.

or

You can re-install Gimp 2.8 following a Gimp 2.10 installation by renaming folders before and after installations - very messy but works.

example https://youtu.be/L9oP_MjGYVA about 5 minutes.

The alternative, similar to Zorba, but use a portable Gimp 2.10 with your existing Gimp 2.8 installation.

I followed Rich's instructions and had no problems at all (Windows 10).

Here is a summary of the method:

1. In search box, type REGEDIT

2. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\GIMP-2in1

3. Delete Gimp

4. Rename Gimp 2.8 user profile (eg from .gimp-2.8 to .Xgimp-2.8)

5. Install Gimp2.10 !IMPORTANT! Use the Customize option

6. Intall to C:\GIMP 210 (and not to to C:\GIMP 2)

7. Yes, I want a desktop icon

8. Rename Gimp 2.8 user profile back to .gimp-2.8

Same as any other Gimp but especially a portable version you can determine the Gimp profile path (for plugins) by opening Edit ->Preferences -> Folders -> Plug-ins  screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/Vanxya9.jpg

For the Partha portable it is ...(path-to)...\Gimp-2.10.4\portable\plug-ins

Partha version is strictly 64 bit so you need the 64 bit version of resynthesizer. Attached the plugins to save you hunting.

Unzip and pop in the above folder: https://i.imgur.com/PINpllL.jpg

Resynthesizer/heal selection works 100% Some functions of LayerFX.py might prove difficult, but generally works. https://i.imgur.com/VryoTfD.jpg

i know even i tried to put the plugins on the 2 portable paths (lib plugins) of partha gimp and using the 64 bit and 32 bit etc etc and downloaded  your copy but nothing work except layer effects plugins like beautify did not work "resynthesizerheal selection is more important for me beside layer effects ..

Nothing that I would care to recommend.


I know that resynthesizer works with the Partha 64 bit version. 

The problem will be somewhere in your installations, probably duplicated files from all your experimentation. Hunt out all resynthesizer.exe/resynthesizer-gui.exe delete and start again making sure you use the correct 64 bit versions.

If you are going to use a portable Gimp 2.10 then the Partha version is the best. 

The alternatives are from 

https://samjcreations.blogspot.com/ - a monster that unpacks to both 64 bit and 32 bit versions. A problem for you might be a language. There are a limited number of 'language' launchers. EN,DE,ES,FR,IT,NL

https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_p...p_portable 32 bit only As far as I know python not working on this version.

NEW UPDATE 6.. For those with the same problem

PORTABLE WAY works if you want to use gimp 2.8 beside gimp 2.10 . if you have problems with plugins or scripts not working ) use tested plugins and scripts . copy them to the portable folder for more safety it is fairly empty so you can delete any plugin or file causes errors easily . beautify plugin need some customization read this thread https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-beauti...install-it . and for resynthesizer heal selection use the plugin files that rich2005 uploaded ( thanks ) ." any way get the plugins from your old gimp  2.8 or from another working 2.10 portable from any one you know . (Not compulsory but that worked with me) Do what suits your situation.

Thanks to everyone cared
