normalmap.exe has stopped working

I've just installed normalmap on a new computer (I had it running on my old one), and every time I click the 3d preview button, I get the error message in the title from Windows. It's Win 7 64 on Intel Core i5 with 4GB of RAM. I've tried placing the files in many different places. Any ideas how to fix this?

I tried installing the latest stable video driver directly from the manufacturer. That didn't work. I also tried running Gimp as an Administrator. That didn't work either, but it did let me open normalmap.exe in Visual Studios built-in debugger, and I saw this error:

Unhandled exception at 0x0082d49b in normalmap.exe: 0XC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000000.

And, Here's the call stack:

So maybe the problem's in libgimpwidgits-2.0-0.dll? Any ideas how to fix this? This was working in 2.8 on my last computer, which was also Win 7 64.

Download the latest version gimp-normalmap1.2.3 http://code.google.com/p/gimp-normalmap/downloads/list appropriate for your system and Gimp. I think that you are using an older version of normalmap which is not suitable for Gimp-2.8

That was the problem; it's working now. Thank you!

I'm running Windows 7 and I downloaded gimp-normalmap1.2.3 from code.google.com. I installed the 3 dlls, glew32.dll, libgdkglext-win32-1.0-0.dll, and libgtkglext-win32-1.0-0.dll, to the bin directory and normalmap.exe to the plug-ins directory. But when I fire up Gimp, I don't see Normalmap in Filters > Map or anywhere. I'm stumped. I'd be grateful for any help.

Will you copy and paste the paths to your bin directory and plug-ins directory here, so we can verify them?

C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins
C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\bin
