Right now I have, Gimp 2.6.11, Python 2.7.2 installed. Of course Python script are not working. If this is a new version of Gimp that works with Python 2.7.2, I'll try it. I'm guessing Gimp 2.7.4 will work in parallel with 2.6.11? I'm running Vista.
I have only tested it in my Windows 32 bit XP platform.
I have Gimp-2.6.11 and my Gimp-2.7.4 installed side by side with no conflicts.
Gimp 2.7.4 is the latest git development version of the Gimp-2.7 series Odinbc.
Probably not (in the installer) certain files:
If you keep those DLL files within their own program directories they should not conflict with one another.
As now i have too much GIMPs but at soon i will clean up i will try
As i said i installed it on my machine with no problems first to test it.Just be sure and delete/move the tiff plugins i mentioned before and there will be no errors when Gimp loads.I am going to try another compile in a couple weeks.
(if the new Gimp-2.8 isn't out yet)
