Resynthesizer / heal-selection plugins for Windows
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. 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?

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.


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 installer gimp-2.10.12-setup-3.exe or something else?
