gap doesn't works in GIMP 2.10

Last year, I worked with gap in gimp 2.8 version and works ok in my PC with W10 OS.
But, Now I install gimp 2.10 and when I try to use Master VideoEncoder Menu, and there are a bug. The program shows a window with a warning "the babl installation seems broken, no extensions found in queried babl path". After, open another window and shows a scrolling error messages 

This is a part of the message

babl-extension.c:354 babl_extension_load_dir_list()

WARNING: the babl installation seems broken, no extensions found in queried
BABL_PATH (C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\32\lib\babl-0.1) this means no SIMD/instructions/special case fast paths and
only slow reference conversions are available, applications might still
run but software relying on babl for conversions will be slow

Please, could you help me?

Thank you in advance

I am no GAP animation user, although I do dabble in video. I see that error message, This in a Win 10 VM + Gimp 2.10.8 + Gap (2.6??)  screenshot:

edit: Those error messages about themes: Try changing from that nasty black theme to maybe the system theme in Edit -> Preferences -> Themes

However, It did import as .xcf files a 10 second clip and it did export those as an avi file. I can see that Master Video Encoder is liable to crash...such is the problem of using ancient software. 

The output was surprising reasonable.

I just put the GAP folders straight in the Gimp user profile  and added the paths in Edit -> Preferences -> Folders

There is a lot of GEGL code in Gimp 2.10, all the editing directly on the canvas is due to it. If GAP worked in Gimp 2.8 I would go back to that version and maybe run a separate Gimp 2.10 alongside. The Partha Gimp 2.10 does not conflict.
