Problem resolved- gimp-help-2-2.8.0-en-setup.exe won't install on Windows 7 64-bit professional

Downloaded the installation file on 9 April 2013.

The installation is an unsuccess.

Started the installation .exe program, the first question is about installation folder, default is "C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP 2", Click on Next button and a message displayed "GIMP2.8 does not appear to be installed in the selected directory. Continue anyway?", this already sounds strange, I have tried in another laptop with Windows 7 Home version and it appeared to reach the same situation. Click on Yes it appear to extract files until it finish. However after the installation, there is not any entry in Program or Icon on Desktop. Browse to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP 2" folder I can't find any .exe file except one unins000.exe file.

Please help!

-----------------------------------------
Found out myself I only downloaded and installed the help portion. Downloaded and installed the main program and everything is fine.

Sorry! Silly mistake.
