Ok, so i have used Gimp for about a year on my macbook. I've recently
downloaded it on my PC but this error message pops up! :
GLib-ERROR **:gmem.c.136:failed to allocate 3472080 bytes aborting...
-and then this follow-up error message...
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error! Program:c:\Program Files\Gimp-2\bin\gimp-2.6.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
Ok, i first downloaded Gimp 2.6.4 with Service Pack 1, and this error came
up. I decided to uninstall it and reinstall it. same problem. I uninstalled it
again and this time, i upgraded to Service Pack 2 & installed the latest
version, 2.6.8 i believe... the same error messages pop up. I have a Dell and
Windows XP SP2.
It doesnt do this 100% of the time, but most of the time. Sometimes it occurs
during startup, sometimes while opening an image, sometimes in the middle of
editing. after the error message, Gimp closes automatically. PLEASE HELP.
