I am having a great deal of trouble install this plugin on Windows 10. I have downloaded both the 32bit and 64bit msi files and zips.
I have installed Gimp 2.8.20 in a custom folder of my own making. I have had it there on this machine for months and all other plugins and .scm files seem to work.
The directory is “C:\Users<User Name>\Desktop\Blender Files\GIMP 2”
The plugins folder under that is : “C:\Users<My User Name>\Desktop\Blender Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins”
the 32bit version of the GMIC installer seems to want to put the files in “C:\Users<My User Name>.gimp-2.8\plug-ins\gmic_gimp_qt”
I have tried using the .msi with its proposed folder and GMIC does not show up inside of gimp
I then tried unzipping the 32 bit zip foder “gmic-gimp-qt-2.2.1-win32” to “C:\Users<My User Name>\Desktop\Blender Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins” That produed and error dialog saying “The application was not able to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application”
Is there a way to install GMIC under the gimp plugin folder that strong text Istrong text want and if not how do I install it so that I do not have to uninstall gimp from the location that is is saved and reinstall it where THIS plugin thinks it should be ?
