Hi there, 

When I use GIMP GNU Image Manipulation Program in some graphic works, an error message appears and it says that the procedure entry point could not be located. Please find the screenshot below for your reference.

Could anyone help me to solve this error please? And any suggestion on the best software to make banners excluding Paint.NET? Any suggestions are welcome. Have a nice day.

Hello,

As I found on Gimp forums people are suggesting to completely remove Gimp and when I say remove I don't mean just to uninstall. After every uninstallation there are some leftovers so I advise you to use Revo Uninstaller to completely remove Gimp from your computer and then restart your computer. After you computer boots up again install Gimp again and you shouldn't have any problems. 

Regards.

Hi there Jay E Eckert,

You're facing a small bug that is really easy to be fixed.

The problem is that during the installation process one of the plugins placed the mentioned file (zlib1.dll) in the wrong directory and it's creating the software.

There are two possible solutions, depending on the version of the software you are using and your OS. Open your GIMP folder, if you haven't changed the path during the installation it should be in C:Program Files. First find the folder named bin and see if there is the file named zlib1.dll. If yes, copy it and paste into the folder libgimpx.xplug-ins.

If the file is not in the bin directory, you will find it in the libgimpx.xplug-ins. Open your System32 folder, make a backup of current zlib1.dll files and after you have a backup, replace the file with the one from the libgimpx.xplug-ins.

Best regards,
