With some trepidation considering the firm refusal of help I had to 
acknowledge :-(
when installing gimp-2.3.18-i586-setup.exe (from 
I'm asking for help.

When I attempt  to run Gimp 2.3 it barfs and dies immediately. No info 
is shown in the DOS box.
Kent ( xanthian) on the gimpwin list suggested that problem was likely 
with GTK+

I had been running Gimp 2.2.x with a GTK+ version (prior to GTK+ 2.10.13)
In an attempt to get everything as current as possible:
I uninstalled Gimp 2.2.x, GTK+ and Gimp 3.3.18 then
installed GTK+ 2.10.13 using gtk+-2.10.13-setup.exe (also from
 http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=121075) then
installed gimp-2.3.18-i586-setup.exe

Running Gimp 2.3.18 still gives same symptoms -
DOSbox starts,
Gimp splash screen displayed,
two frame windows opened (main Gimp window and tip-of-the-day but no 
contents are painted),
two tasks show in TaskManager: Gimp2.3.exe and script-fu.exe and then
"Gimp 2.3 must close ..." error dialog is shown

Install for Gimp 2.3.18 gives bug list queries to check.
" 436242 depend on GTK+ 2.10.13" looks relevant but as I read it I s/b 
OK wrt it?

Has anyone a suggestion for what might be wrong and/or further info I 
can supply? (Unfortunately I don't have the competence to attempt to 
compile Gimp myself)

FWIW: this is the original thread on Yahoo-gimpwin:
gimp-2.3.18-i586-setup.exe after install gives "gimp-2.3.exe has 
encountered"  http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/gimpwin-users/message/19705
