Windows: Gimp loading fonts on each startup: possible workaround

Except automatic Windows updates?

no, i didnt have any win updates in a while
Thanks for this tip. Just wanted to add that it worked for me with the 'portableapps' portable version of 2.8 (I now have 2.10 as my main install but still use a portable install of 2.8 for various purposes).

The procedure is slightly different, in that the files one has to rename are obviously not found in the user\appdata folder, but in GIMPPortable\Data\fontconfig\cache.

I renamed the files and my first reload still took a while (but shorter than normal, and the .old file was removed) but on subsequent restarts things are very fast now.

Thanks again.
