The problem appears to be unrelated to ufraw. I've removed all versions/relics of gimp and ufraw that I can find: uninstall, plus remove directories remove registry entries rebootAre there particular .dlls or anything else I need to remove that the uninstall process might leave around that would cause trouble, such as .dlls? I've searched specifically for bzip2.dll, and there is a copy associated with another program in a program-specific directory (\Program Files\EASEUS) unrelated to gimp.
When I run the install (using normal install, although custom fails as well), it appears to install correctly.
However:It does not create a desktop shortcut (Should it, in the default install?)
It creates only a single entry in the start menu, labelled "GIMP 2". In particular, no subitems, such as uninstall (should it?)A possible issue -- this is running booted from an "F:" drive, with no "C:" or "D:" drive on the machine.
Reinstalling GIMP 2.7.5 works fine: creates a desktop shortcut creates a start menu item with three subitems Gimp-2.7.5, Uninstall, Website loads and runs fine I don't know how closely the 2.8 rc1 install should mirror 2.7.5 Thanks for any insights...

Von: Gary Aitken<gimp@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>Has anyone gotten the windoze installer version of 2.8.0-rc1 to work properly? I've been running 2.7.5 for a while but when I tried installing the 2.8 rc1 I'm having problems. The gimp comes up ok, but when I attempt to load a .jpg file it hangs; as I recall it's spinning its wheels in ufraw-gimp.exe (I forgot to write down the exact name, but I think that's it).ufraw-gimp.exe is a third-party plug-in to load RAW files. If it has registeres itself as a file loader for JPEG files (quite possible) and fails*, then this may cause the problem you've mentioned. You should remove this plug-in from the plug-ins directory and try again. *The fact the this plug-in ships with its own copy of bzip2.dll has cause problems in the past. Re-installing the current, but pretty old version of it may fix the problem - or cause additional problem in GIMP. Regards, Michael
