Well now I am getting further along .
But when I press download it takes me to
" Perfect photo suite 8" a program I already have .
Not related to gimp I assume .

It seems like you are not downloading it from the official website.
When you want GIMP, always get it from:
This is the official release webpage and the only place trustworthy.

There are actually a few places with third-party trusted builds of
GIMP, but if you are not sure of which is which, the website
is the place to go (the third party trusted builds are usually listed
there too anyway).
Over there, there won't be any strange advertisements or redirecting
you to some weird other program.



If someone could recommend a a path to download
Gimp that may be helpful, as I really do want
to use Gimp .
thanks again,

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
Gimp will not open , a note comes down to say " the program can't
because Libgimpui-2.0-0.dll
is missing from your computer. try reinstalling the program to fix
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.
