While testing another issue, I found that GIMP 2.7.4 fails to load
correctly on Windows 2000. http://www.gimp.org/windows/ says "GIMP
should run on any NT-based version of Windows (NT4, 2000, XP or Vista)."
Is that statement still correct, or has support for pre-XP been dropped?
That's something that should definitely be fixed - NT4 hasn't been
supported since GIMP 2.2 IIRC, and I think the last version that works on
2000 is somewhere around 2.6.7. Looks like you also found a bug in the 2.7
installer - I forgot to put the check for Windows XP SP3 in it - it
should've never allowed installing on Windows 2000.
Thanks for confirming; I did wonder at NT4 support. I've filed a bug
against gimp-web for that page:
Should I also file one against the installer?
I'm happy to try an updated installer when available, if you don't have
access to Windows 2000 and want to check that it refuses to install.
