    Which download did you use I just tried the one under "windows binaries" that one has a dds.exe and a couple of dll's (as distinct from the other downloads which seem to give you a lot of stuff that needs compiling).

    Putting the dds.exe and the two .dll's in the folder
    E:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins
    made mine work. (Obviously change the beginning of the file path to where-ever you installed your copy of GIMP.

    My GIMP is version and I'm on windows XP in case that makes any difference.
    Not used mods before? Looking for something small and fun?!
