 Reason is that python support in Windows version of Gimp is disabled
 by default.
 Is possible enable it, for that is needed Unistall gimp, install
 Python libraries (not only Python ) and then reinstall Gimp with the
 "custom" option, and in the following dialog check the "python"

 But do not worry to make it easier i grouped all that is needed
 including Python in a single pack, with a almost idiot proof " how to

 Pack is here
 i done for Gimp 2.4  but i believe is still updated,anyway for me
 still works with last gimp 2.6.1
 again how to is included, you can't miss that text file is very
 clearly labeled

even more information on installing/running python on gimp windows are here

@fotocomix - I found the above reference a couple of days ago (I think by googling [python gimp plugin]. Just thought I'd comment on the need for reboots you stressed in your "IDIOTS NEVER READ THIS". Not sure if anything has changed in GIMP between 2.4 and 2.6.1. I already had Python25 and pygtk-2.12.1-2 but not the other two requirements.

I think all three of the packages have later versions since you created the ZIP so I got them. With Gimp closed I installed the two I was missing (pycairo-1.4.12-1, pygobject-2.14.1-1) and restarted GIMP. Python-Fu showed up this time :-)

No reboots were necessary.
