Updated to GIMP 2.10.24 Cannot install GMIC plug in
#1
Hello,

Show Mercy upon me, as far as being a programmer, I am Not.  Relatively new Gimp user, been Photoshopping for years.  Opened Gimp today, it said there was an update available, without  hesitation - updated it to version 2.10.24.   Downloaded the gmic_2.9.6_gimp2.10_win64 files.  Found a YouTube video with an English gentleman that instructed how to install the 2.10 version of the GMIC files.  Tried installing them per the video, no luck.  Was getting an error message while opening Gimp.

"The procedure entry point g_memdup2. could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\ligbobject-2.0-0.dll"

Tried uninstalling, restarting the machine, and deleting the versions I had installed without success.  Even tried a Windows system restore to a checkpoint before today, but the newest 2.10 version was still in my program folder, so no dice.  Was hoping I could find the older version of Gimp that I had, but did not succeed.  Tried a couple solutions I found on the web, but my lack of coding skills likely sent that over the transom.  Praying there's a simple solution.  For your consideration, I thank you.

Looks like Gimp (Windows) 2.10.24 is somewhat buggy.

Another report here: http://gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=19285#p262747

I would go back to 2.10.22 until the developers get it all sorted.

As far a gimp_gmic_qt is concerned the Windows installer generally works out-of-the-box.

That's good news.  I shall try to locate that version and post my success/failure.  Thank you for the tip.

Hallelujah - we're back up and running on 2.10.22.  Have a box of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies with your name upon them.
