I installed gimp 2.8.22 on Windows 10, 64-bit.
When I run gimp, I get the initialization window, which queries fonts, then plugins. Gimp gets stuck at the plugin gimpgpui2.exe, producing hundreds of copies of gimpgpui2.exe. Eventually, Microsoft says Gimp is unresponsive, and it asks if I want to terminate the program. I say yes, but the Task Manager shows hundreds of gimpgpui2.exe processes still running. (There were 322 this last time!)
To kill it, I have to open a command window and type:
taskkill /f /im gimp*
That gets rid of most of them, but I have to run it a second time because more processes appear.
Any idea of how to get gimp to run without this problem?
