thanks for your tip.
Regrettably, it doesn't work. I tried it on two computers:
1. Intel-based system with 965 Intel graphic chipset family, XP Prof, SP3
2. AMD-based system with NVidia 8400 graphics card, Media Center 2005 (like
XP Prof), SP3
Only on the AMD-system it provides an error-message (not from GIMP but from
MS): ModName msvcrt.dll, ModVer: 7.0.2600.5512. This file was changed by SP3
(!), but there were files from MAGIX and Nero with the same name, but in other
I hope, it helps a little bit.
