This post is for HP users who are struggling to get GIMP to install correctly.  
All credit for this goes to Rene from Sydney (on this forum) who gave me 
step-by-step instructions on how to to get the installation problems sorted out 
for HP computers.  (Eternal thanks to you!!!!)I am reposting the instructions 
here for other HP users who are having the same installation problems - maybe 
we could have these instructions in the FAQ of the GIMP website. I dont know 
about anyone else but just renaming the file didnt work for me - however this 
worked like a magic trick.  Again - this solution must be credited to Rene.

Here Goes:

1.  Deinstall GIMP 2.6 (If you tried to install and got the entry point error)


2.  Open computer/C-drive/Windows/System 32 and search for intl.dll
3.  Rename the intl.dll file to intl.bak
4.  Close the "System32" window

These are the steps that get GIMP plug-ins running in this scenario.

5.  Download and install GIMP 2.6 - when it has installed you might get the same entry 
point error message again - exit through all the entry point windows until it launches 
the "incomplete" programme (this means when the programme can open a blank 
canvas, but cant do much else because of all the missing .exe.

Why download and install GIMP again?

6.  Close GIMP

That should be step 0.

7.  Open computer/Local Disk C/Program Files (or whereever your pc saves your 
programmes to)
8.  Search for GIMP-2.0 and open.  Open bin. Search for intl.dll and copy the 
9.  Paste the "intl.dll" file into GIMP-2.0/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins and close 

You won't need steps 2-4 and 10-11 then.

But you'll have the same problem again if GIMP ships with a newer version of libintl.

10. Go back into computer/local Disk C/Windows/System 32 and search for intl.bak
11. select and rename intl.bak into intl.dll.

12. Ask HP when they will fix that from their side.
