Updating the FAQ with the jpeg.exe problem ?

Roel Schroeven-2


You may have noticed the high number of thread regarding the crash of
the jpeg.exe plugin. What do you think about adding the following lines
to the FAQ ( http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/faq.html )

Q: When opening a jpeg, gimp reports that jpeg.exe has crashed. What can
I do?
A: some installers of gimp 2.2.6 contained a buggy version of a library
used for jpeg (and tiff) images. Upgrade to gimp 2.2.7 or later, or
replace the file "libexif-12.dll" located in
C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\bin
by the one you can find at
(look for a file whose name is similar to "libexif-0.6.11.zip",
numbering might be different ).
