Loader for NASA/ESA PDS/EDR images (PDS PLUGIN) FOR WINDOWS 7?

i AM IN NEED OF HELP PLEASE?
I have windows 7, & installed the Gimp 2.6 and seemingly cannot find a plugin for
the PDS plugin to view .img or .imq imagery.

I have the gimp 2 on my windows xp computer which recently took a dump, & I was able to view the .img imagery on that computer.

I went to thislink:
http://registry.gimp.org/node/1627

for this plugin, & I see no PDS plugin there to download. I downloaded the attatchment & unzipped it & there is NO PDS
PLUGIN THERE FOR ME TO INSTALL?

Please help me with descriptive easy to follow lingo to how to get this to work on my Windows 7 machine?
I not see the problem, the Gimp 2.6 is installed & running/working. So I not know what to do to solve this, so that is why I post here.

PLEASE HELP??!!

The version listed there is for Linux and requires that you compile it. You might bring this to SamJ's attention, or possibly wacmaster can create a Windows binary version for you.

the link is here

If that doesn't work let me know ,and i will compile one for you.

There is a new binary now on http://areo.info/gimp in folder gimp-2.6 for GIMP on Windows XP / 7 / Vista. It does work on my Windows XP and Windows 7 64bit with GIMP 2.6.12.

Take note, that you need the normal 32bit version of GIMP from http://www.gimp.org/windows/ not the experimental combined 64bit and 32bit version. The 32bit version also runs on Windows 64bit.

GEM image-plugin could not open image
trying to open this file
http://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/data/mex/hrsc/mexhrsc_0001//data/0010/h0....

So i compiled one myself and i get the same error.

I am running on Windows XP, with Gimp-2.6.12

"GEM" is some other plugin which is also registered to the very common file extension ".img". So rename the file from .img to .imq and try again. I don't know if you can say GIMP manually which file extension to open with which plugin.

Renaming the .img to .imq worked excellent! :)

Thanks!

Thanks! I added the 64bit binary to http://areo.info/gimp/
