GIMP 2.8 - EKC3220.DLL was not Found


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 C:\Program Files\Lucidlogix Technologies\VIRTU folder.

For GIMP to be able to find that dll, just copy EKC3220.dll to C:\Windows\System32 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.
