[Gimp-user] Compatable with Windows 7 ?

Dear GIMP Experts,
Thank you very much for your reply.
Your advise was exactly what I needed.
I installed version 2.10.10 and at first sight, it works perfectly.

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.
