Re: [Gimp-user] Unable to install GIMP.

A few weeks ago I uninstalled GIMP because it crashed every few minutes and I
didn't use it much anyways. I went to install it again about a week ago and it
gave me an error. This error (which can be seen in the attachment) stated I
already had GIMP installed and that I should either uninstall it or try to
install this version in a new folder. There were no folders related to GIMP in
the slightest anywhere in that folder, or on my computer for that matter.

I then tried to go back and choose a different location to install it to, but
every folder I tried caused the same error message. I've deleted/uninstalled
every possible thing related to GIMP on my computer, but I still get this error
message. I don't know what's causing this. If anyone could help, it would be
much appreciated.


Looks like a Microsoft registry problem to me.  You might try searching
for GIMP in the registry editor and deleting all entries, or use an
automatic registry cleaner that will do the same for all "orphaned"
registry entries for programs that are no longer installed.

The Wise registry cleaner has a very good track record, backs up
everything before changing anything.  It will probably also speed up all
operations on the machine - progressive registry corruption makes a
computer appear to be "wearing out."
