Hi - I was wondering if you managed to resolve this issue. I have the same
problem - and I have an HP Probook4530s with a CORE i5 processor. I am not
that clued up with computers or how they work so I need someone to hold my hand
through this process. I also get the "The procedure entry point
libintl_snprintf could not be located in the dynamic link library intl.dll."
error when I try to start GIMP.
I went into System 32 files and found the intl.dll file - but what exactly must
I rename itto (as advised by the FAQ section).
And as I see in this post - it causes some other logon problem - and I dont
know what this means or what he is even talking about. But whatever it is I
dont want it to do the same on my pc.
Can some kind person please walk me through the fix process step-by-step (like
you are talking to someone who is a real idiot).
Please - I do like GIMP and I am using it to make posters and images for my
classroom - so it will be great if someone can help me out....and the children
will have something better to look at than broken and cracked walls
