Hello Jehan
I did a search on the PC and Lib ect. is their !
So, this is all way over my head and I must
give up at this point.

Well, there is probably a bug in the installer, maybe specifically for
this "Surface Pro 3" environment. Could you please open a bug report
so that we remember?
This may not be fixed soon, since I don't know if any of the
developers has such a tablet. But at least we can track the issue (in
the mailing list, it will just get forgotten in a few days).

yes thanks
It was downloaded directly from the site and its      windows "updated
Gimp will not open , a note comes down to say " the program can't start
because Libgimpui-2.0-0.dll
is missing from your computer. try reinstalling the program to fix this
problem "
This is a very new surface pro 3 and I assume windows 8.1

And you had no problem when installing GIMP? Like an error message
during the installation process?
Also could you try to search your system files for
Libgimpui-2.0-0.dll, so that we can know if this is actually absent or
the system simply can't find it.

Note that I am not the most expert of the Windows installer. I am
merely trying to look for some obvious hints, but maybe some other dev
may know better how to debug your case.
If that were my dev installation, I would update the PATH environment
variable's value (if the dll was present but not found). But these
kind of "hack" should not be necessary with a user installation from
the official installer. So if you don't get any answer on this mailing
list from the people who would know better than I, I advise that you
open a bug report on our bug tracker (just wait a little in case
someone knows the right solution):



thanks again.

first of all I LOVE gimp !  [ on my old Mac ]
I just got a surface pro 3 and have uploaded the
latest Gimp but the pro says my computer is missing
" libgimpui-2.0-0.dll   "
What do I do now ???

Could we have more information on:
- where did you download GIMP from, and which version?
- when does this error happen exactly? When you start GIMP? Any more
detail on the error context?


thank you so much.
