[Gimp-user] Compatable with Windows 7 ?

A simple users question.
I am a happy 2.8.22 GIMP user and I have Windows 7 reinstalled after
having Windows 10 deleted.
My question is: “Will GIMP 2.10.10 under Windows 7 ?”

As with anything, not so simple.

If the Win7 is 64 bit then there should be no problem with Gimp 2.10.10 , I just
installed in a Win7 64bit (VM) and it works.

If Gimp 2.8 exists, advise a clean installation, uninstall Gimp 2.8, rename the
Gimp 2.8 use profile (.../gimp-2.8) to disable. Gimp 2.10 tries to copy existing
resources and not all scripts/plug-ins work with Gimp 2.10.

Install Gimp 2.10, run to create a new user profile.

Win7 32 bit can be a problem, 

Gimp 2.10.8 and Gimp 2.10.10 do not work on **some** 32 bit installations. All
you can do is try, if it works - great. If it does not work, use Gimp 2.10.6
(release 1) from www.gimp.org


Same comment about installation.
