Some questions about installing GIMP Animation Package and GIMP Help on Windows workstations

I am a computer teacher at a public high school in Sylmar, California, and a long time open source enthusiast. I have downloaded and installed GIMP 2.6.4 on the 32 Windows XP workstations in my computer lab. I have also downloaded gimp-gap-2.4.0.tar.bz2 and gimp-help-2.4.2.tar.bz2 to my administrative Windows XP computer; I uncompressed both these files. producing GIMPAnimationPackage and GIMPHelp folders folders respectively. Both of these folders contain a file called "install", but both talk about shell scripts which are appropriate to Unix or Linux.

How do I install the animation package and the help files to Windows computers?

Some questions about installing GIMP Animation Package and GIMP Help on Windows workstations

I have downloaded  gimp-help 2.4.2.tar  file

but not quite sure where this

should be extracted / opened to so that Gimp picks the

help files up--

Regards,Richard

In both case you get the wrong installer.

As for Gap the only official Windows installer is outdated from years, from when gimp 2.2 popped out,and will never work in combination with Gimp 2.4 or 2.6

But i am mirroring (here
http://photocomix-resources.deviantart.com/art/GAP2-4-For-Gimp2-4-windows-76889004 plus you will need this 2 files
http://photocomix-resources.deviantart.com/art/Gap2-4-BugFix-Files-77466242 , how to is included and in the comment )

a less official but much more updated GAP installer, that work well with gimp 2.4 and kind of work with gimp 2.6 (where are problem on 2.6 with "Filter all layers" and Frame modify-apply filter, problem solved in the last SVN version, but nobody compiled that for windows till now

Shortly most GAP function will work even used with GImp 2.6 but for best compatibility should be instead used with gimp 2.4

about the help you look on the wrong place you should search with keyword as "Gimp For Windows Sourceforge gimp help .exe "... there are several versions but all as .exe or .zip, if not are for other OS then Win

Then i do not know if for

First, you download the right files. gimp-gap-2.4.0.tar.bz2 is almost certainly a source code distribution, not binaries. Probably both of the files you downloaded are unsuitable for your architecture.

For GIMP-GAP, you probably want the file linked to here: http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/topic/Gimp-gap-2-4-0-For-Windows-28692-1.html

Thank-you for your reply to my request for help.  I read what you wrote and followed the links.  As far as I can tell, there is no currently available GIMP Animation Package for GIMP 2.6; nor do I find appropriate GIMP Help files that I could install on the workstations.  Of course, there is always on-line help.

That's somewhat true. I myself use GAP 2.4 with GIMP 2.6, and it works okay for me.
AFAIK the package I linked is what you'd install to get this setup on Windows systems.
