Cannot find BIB.dll (Win32)

Cannot find BIB.dll (Win32)

Cannot find BIB.dll (Win32)

Having just downloaded the runtime files and Gimp 1.2 and installed them. The GIMP worked fine first time, then when i opened it again i am told that the file 'BIB.dll' cannot be found and that i should try re-installing the program. Which i do but the error message is still there.

I have uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing seems to work?

Anyone any ideas?

RE: Cannot find BIB.dll (Win32)


I realise reading a variety of similar messages, that this may indeed be a blug in the programme

I installed Gimp in XP, ran it perfectly first time, then the next time began to get a missing plugin.dll warning.  I completely reinstalled Gimp and it still persisted.

I think there is a bug in Windows, perhaps specifically xp.

I have erased the programme and will stick to photoshop.
