The problem appears to be unrelated to ufraw.
I've removed all versions/relics of gimp and ufraw that I can find:
uninstall, plus remove directories
remove registry entries
Are there particular .dlls or anything else I need to remove that the
uninstall process might leave around that would cause trouble, such as
.dlls? I've searched specifically for bzip2.dll, and there is a copy
associated with another program in a program-specific directory
(\Program Files\EASEUS) unrelated to gimp.
When I run the install (using normal install, although custom fails as
well), it appears to install correctly.
It does not create a desktop shortcut (Should it, in the default
It creates only a single entry in the start menu, labelled "GIMP 2".
In particular, no subitems, such as uninstall (should it?)
A possible issue -- this is running booted from an "F:" drive, with no
"C:" or "D:" drive on the machine.
Reinstalling GIMP 2.7.5 works fine:
creates a desktop shortcut
creates a start menu item with three subitems
Gimp-2.7.5, Uninstall, Website
loads and runs fine
I don't know how closely the 2.8 rc1 install should mirror 2.7.5
Thanks for any insights...

Has anyone gotten the windoze installer version of 2.8.0-rc1 to work
properly? I've been running 2.7.5 for a while but when I tried
installing the 2.8 rc1 I'm having problems. The gimp comes up ok, but
when I attempt to load a .jpg file it hangs; as I recall it's spinning
its wheels in ufraw-gimp.exe (I forgot to write down the exact name, but
I think that's it).
ufraw-gimp.exe is a third-party plug-in to load RAW files. If it has registeres
itself as a file loader for JPEG files (quite possible) and fails*, then this
may cause the problem you've mentioned.
You should remove this plug-in from the plug-ins directory and try again.
*The fact the this plug-in ships with its own copy of bzip2.dll has cause
problems in the past. Re-installing the current, but pretty old version of it
may fix the problem - or cause additional problem in GIMP.
