GIMP plug-ins are regular programs not DLLs, and they are executed by GIMP. You can check the paths to these in the pluginrc that is typically stored in %appdata%\Roaming. The DLLs that these plug-in programs require are located in the bin directory. I suspect that this person has not set PATH. For example, the nightly builds from darkrefraction.com just extract the tree of files and expect a user to run the "run_gimp.bat" batch file (which sets PATH). If one were to run gimp-2.9.exe directly in this case, the plug-ins that link to DLLs would not find them (e.g., the file format ones that look for libpng, libtiff, libjpeg, etc.). The regular Windows installer sets this up, so you may want to ask that person which installer was used. Mukund
