PNG Export - No Options in Dialog


I downloaded the latest version of GIMP (2.8.0) and have been using it for a little while. I have exported a PNG with transparency before, but something changed, and now it will not give me any options in the PNG dialog box. It is just a small box with three buttons: Help, Export, and Cancel. (This is after selecting the file and filetype and clicking Export).

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but no change. Using Windows 7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I understand that the export types are handled by plugins (except XCF), and I thought maybe something happened to my plugin somehow, but I can't find a replacement to download.

Thank you! I have spent hours trying to resolve this and I'm exasperated!

My Export PNG dialog box8.73 KB

I don't remember exactly how the Gimp installation tree looks undr Windows (somewhere in c:\Progam Files\Gimp\...) but you should have somewhere a file in share/gimp/2.0/ui/plug-ins/plug-in-file-png.ui

If its missing you have to reinstall (or find a copy to restore back...)

A reinstall has already been attempted, according to the reporter. I wonder how a missing file could survive that... a corrupt one, especially with a recent modification time, might though.

This has been reported as - both the PNG and GIF plug-ins make use of the ui definition files.

As written in the bug, no cause for the problem has been identified yet.
