HELP: Installation Issues with Gimp 2.8.20

Nate Owens
I have been trying for over a week to install Gimp 2.8.20
I have successfully ran previous versions of Gimp for a year or more
I'm running windows pro 7
I constantly install software with no problems, most recently Inkscape from
your site
There is no reason I know of for an "access denied" flag... denied to my C
drive? denied to what???

Hey Nate,

Did you get this sorted out yet?

Do you recall the steps you took to install your previous version of GIMP? Was it on the same system? Did you uninstall previous version of GIMP before attempting to install the latest version?

Under the Win 7 system, you will probably have access limitations to the system drive C:, even with an account that has Admin privileges.

I’m assuming you download an install executable. If that’s the case - download installer then run locally - try right-clicking on the installer and choose “Run as Administrator”. You’ll have to do it from an account that has Admin privileges, and provide the Admin password when prompted.

You may even want to try installing in a different directory, if the install continues to fail. Not the neatest method, but may get you up and running.

Please keep us up to date on how the install is going.

Rick
