If you have installed GIMP 2.8 for Windows and you get the following error when you launch it:
"EKC3220.dll, was not found"
It means you have earlier installed some version of Lucidlogix Technologies' VIRTU application, which comes with this dll. You can find EKC3220.dll in folder
For GIMP to be able to find that dll, just copy EKC3220.dll to directory.
Also, to everyone who is having this error:
"The procedure entry point gzdirect could not be located in the dynamic link library zlib1.dll".Just copy zlib1.dll from "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\" and place it in "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins" and it will start right up.
