Resynthesizer / heal-selection plugins for Windows
#11
I found two copies of libstdc++-6.dll in the GIMP folders:

1: in GIMP 2\bin >> 1.723.464 bytes

2: in GIMP 2\32\bin >> 1.864.705 bytes

What should I do?

A new Gimp 2.10.12 install in a Win 7 64 bit (VM) here and the values are the same.

No other versions of libstdc++6.dll on the computer? You searched? Any number of applications use that file including old versions of gmic which often cause problems.
I can not tell you to remove anything in the Widows system, it might break another application.

I tried all different versions of resynthesizer and all working ok. So not much advice I can give.

You could try the version attached here. https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Resynt...7#pid12687 that works here in Win7 but then so do the Mediafire files.

Replace the resynthesizer.exe and resynthesizer-gui.exe files C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins with the new ones.

Otherwise, do not know.

There are several other libstdc++-6.dll present on my PC, but not in GIMP.

Would it be an option to uninstall GIMP completely and do a clean install, without the use old plugins option? Can I then manually add the heal-selection plugin?

[EDIT]
Did a clean reinstall as described above.
I noticed that the folder \AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\ does not get removed when uninstalling.
After the clean install no error message when starting up, but after starting up GIMP the heal-selection is not present in the filters menu.

(Just seen your Edit about a new install the way to go is :-   )

It is usually not necessary to re-install Gimp. A problem is most often in your Gimp profile.

The procedure is.

If you have an old Gimp 2.8 profile C:\Users\"yourname"\.gimp-2.8 move it some where safe (or delete if not needed )

Rename the existing Gimp 2.10 profile to disable it.
C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP to C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP-old

Start Gimp and it makes a new default Gimp profile.

Download resynth.zip https://www.gimp-forum.net/attachment.php?aid=2609

Unzip and put the 4 files in C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins

If that does not work and a re-install is needed Use the Gimp uninstaller first and delete any Gimp files that might be left over. Disable any existing Gimp 2.8 and Gimp 2.10 profiles.

Did what you suggested.

Now the filter Map » Resynthesizer is present, but there is no Enhance » Heal selection

Another day, another possible cause.

No python plugin showing? Do you have in the Filters menu a Python-Fu section?

Out of interest, Are you using the latest gimp.org installer gimp-2.10.12-setup-3.exe or something else?

So I tried once again, after installing GIMP 2.10.14.
Still no heal selection in the menu.

Now I tried starting up resynthesizer.exe (console) by starting it manually in C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins
A pop-up asked for libgimp-2.0-0.dll, which it said is missing on my computer.
So I searched for it and then found libgimp-2.0-0.dll to be present in C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin
The I copied libgimp-2.0-0.dll to C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins
After which I manually started up resynthesizer.exe (console)
Now a pop-up asked for a supposedly missing from my computer libgimpbase-2.0-0.dll

I then repeated the copying of the DLL and starting up process over and over, and ended up copying many files from C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin
Eacht time the pop-up would ask for another.
The other DLL files where:

libgexiv2-2.dll
libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll
libgcc_s_seh-1.dll
libwinpthread-1.dll
libstdc++-6.dll
libexiv2.dll
libexpat-1.dll
libiconv-2.dll
libgio-2.0-0.dll
libintl-8.dll

After which I quit this process.

So what do I think I learned from this exercise?

That resynthesizer.exe and probably also resynthesizer-gui.exe keep looking for it's required dependencies (DLL's) in C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins , in stead of C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin

Can this be solved?

The only thing you learned (hopefully) is not to try and start a Gimp plugin from outside of the Gimp menu structure.

Now go back and undo all that you have done

You do not need to solve anything. The resynthesizer / heal plugins work like this. https://youtu.be/RTuil4TgMNM  duration 2 and a half minutes.





However, with the best will in the world, I have absolutely no idea of what is going on in your Windows / Gimp installations.

I had already undone everything.

It doesn't answer the question why is resynthesizer.exe searching for the DLL's within the plugin folder?

I already answered that question. You are causing the error messages by running the resynthesizer file from outside the Gimp menu structure.

Look,  I can get error messages as well but that is not the way Gimp plugins (and scripts) work.

   

-----------------------------------
Very rarely needed but after all your modifications you might as well start again. To get a clean installation.

1. Un-install Gimp using the Windows  un-install menu
2. If C:\Program Files\GIMP 2 remains, delete it
3. Delete your Gimp profile, C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP
4. Get the latest Gimp installer from http://www.gimp.org  and install Gimp
5. Run Gimp to create a new default Gimp user profile.
6. Get the resynthesizer files from  https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Resynt...7#pid12687
7. Unzip and put the four files plugin-heal-selection.py  plugin-heal-transparency.py  resynthesizer.exe  resynthesizer-gui.exe in C:\Users\"yourname"\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins

Check that it works as the video demo I made for you.
