A simple question. I have gimp 2.6.12 installed in WinXP SP3. Do I need to
remove it before installing gimp 2.7.5?
No, but I'd make sure to customize the installation directory of GIMP 2.7.5 and keep 2.6 installed - there's a customize button in the installer dialog.
When I did this I found that some or all of the file types previously
associated with GIMP 2.6.12 were reassigned to 2.7.5, so for example
double-clicking an .xcf file would open it in GIMP 2.7.5 instead. That
may or may not be what you want (or you may not care if you only ever
start the relevant version of GIMP and open files from there). If file
types are not associated with the version you'd like, you can use
Windows' settings to change them; I think on XP they're under Control
Panel > Folder Options > File Types.
