    GIMP on Windows 7

    We have just come across a problem with GIMP running on windows 7 with folder redirection in place.

    If a user of the system creates a new drawing in GIMP and clicks File Save / Save as it defaults to Windows\System32. In windows XP, this used to default to the users userarea. Looks like another nail in the coffin for Windows 7

    Has anyone else had this problem and do you know of a work around?

    Thanks

    On the Windows 7 machine next to me, my GIMP shortcut is set to start in the %USERPROFILE%\Pictures directory and as a result that's where GIMP wants to save files by default.

    I would look at what directory your shortcut is set to start the GIMP in :-)

    I managed to get round this by using Group Policy to remove the shortcut from the start menu and put a new one in its place with the start in set to U:
