GIMP 2.6 Help Browser Fix

This may or may not be necessary in GIMP 2.8. Gimp 2.6 for Windows does not come with the Help Browser. You can either install the Help Browser or change the configuration to use a web browser instead, as shown below. Other defaults can also be defined this way. See the gimprc file for documentation on the available configuration settings.

<install cmd='%COMSPEC% /c echo (help-browser web-browser) >> "%PROGRAMFILES%\GIMP\etc\gimp\2.0\gimprc"' />

<install cmd='%COMSPEC% /c echo (user-manual-online yes) >> "%PROGRAMFILES%\GIMP\etc\gimp\2.0\gimprc"' />
<upgrade cmd='%COMSPEC% /c echo (help-browser web-browser) >> "%PROGRAMFILES%\GIMP\etc\gimp\2.0\gimprc"' />

<upgrade cmd='%COMSPEC% /c echo (user-manual-online yes) >> "%PROGRAMFILES%\GIMP\etc\gimp\2.0\gimprc"' />
