Got python working now.
Mainly four reasons why I fumbled with it for so long..
1) I had 32Bit gimp.pyd on my path for some reason. I have tried building both so I
must have moved it to test something and that 32/64 conflict confused me.
2) No libpython27.dll or pythonw.exe. With MSys2 there comes libpython2.7.dll and
python2w.exe though..
3) lib/gimp/2.0/interpreters/pygimp.intrep gets messed every time when building.
(this is definitely a bug in build process)
4) I once removed everything and used a different --prefix but the earlier installation path in Edit/Preferences/Folders/Interpreters stayed the same even though other
paths changed to reflect the new location and I didn't notice it at first.
(someone might want to look at that if it's a bug)

What have you tried so far to get Python working? All I see is "python is
not working".

Just as FYI, I've been providing Windows 64bit and Mac builds for almost 5
years now.

I have a build working from latest master with Msys2, and I'm in progress
of making notes to how to do it. Still haven't got python working ok as
running Gimp gives me "Failed to execute child process (No such file or
directory)" errors on every py script when launching, but I'll post my
notes so far..

Hopefully that helps.
(and I'm using WIn10, 64bit)

Hi,

I've also been working on building Gimp for Windows simply because for
one reason or another I have Windows on my main, faster machine, and I've
wanted to get some of the latest bug fixes. I also wanted to fix -
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=757717

I tried the Linux cross compile using the wiki Mingw64 instructions. I
was trying to retrieve the prebuilt library RPM's from, I think it's
OpenSUSE, but that seems to be outdated. Now I have Code::Blocks setup to
cross compile with MinGW-w64, I’ll try building those dependencies.

I'm investigating MSYS2. It looks like a good project and a lot of other
projects seem to use it to provide releases for Windows, but its a slow to
compile even with multiple threads set.  Some of those projects may use
Python so they might be able to help with Python for Gimp.

I attach my current "autogen" and "make" outputs. I am building with most
extras disabled as I just want to iron out the build process first.

Are you building from the main branch ?

Do you get a successful build with Python disabled ?

Cheers.
