[Gimp-user] entry point error message

hello,  I originally installed gimp 2.10.  But after finding out that
many of the youtube videos concern gimp 2.8 instead of 2.10 I down
loaded 2.8.  When I try to open it it will not let me and says The
procedure entry point inflateValidate could not be located in the
dynamic link library C:Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\libpng 16-16.dll.   
Can anyone help me please?  Thanks

Anything to do with using a Windows TWAIN scanner?

If not give details of what you are doing.


It could be that there are files left over from installing Gimp 2.10 followed by
installing Gimp 2.8

Use Windows uninstall menu to uninstall Gimp (whatever version showing  - Gimp

If there is C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\ folder remaining delete it.

Make sure you are using the last Windows installer from gimp.org


Reinstall Gimp 2.8 again using that version.
