Re: [Gimp-developer] Windows 8.1

My Windows 8.1 system has a Windows/System32, presumably for 32-bit .dlls

I would imagine that moving the .dlls from your 64-bit GIMP installation into the System32 folder might not 
be too successful.

I would also suggest that the disgruntled user doesn't know what they are talking about.

To be fair, we got one quite disgruntled user recently who said exactly this:

"This is Windows 8.1, As I already said, your installer puts all the
.dll files in the bin folder. They won't work there. I have to move
all of them to the Windows/System32 folder where they belong."

Now, as some of team members pointed out, System32 sounds like he's on
Windows 98 (with Windows 95 habits) rather than on 8.1. But is it
correct to out .dll files there? And if it is, why would GIMP not work
