  1. Report this to Discord and ask them to fix it. Nothing's wrong with Paint.NET.
  2. Even if you disable it, it could still be injecting itself and running some of its code (and causing the error). If it's possible to completely exit the program, do so and try again (and paste the crash log if the crash happens again). If it can't be exited, try uninstalling it. Yes, this is necessary for debugging this issue. From looking at your crash log and where it's pointing to in my code, my best guess is that there is memory corruption. The code is throwing an error in a location that should be impossible to reach, and the only what that should be possible is if memory is being incorrectly overwritten.
  3. C:\Program Files (x86)\Unchecky\bin\inject_x64.dll, version=1.2 My money's on "Unchecky", whatever that is, being the culprit.
  4. This thread is 5 years old, I'm closing it ... nothing personal
  5. You should be able to use the "Default apps" in Settings to register any file type with any app. You may have to double-click on a VTF image first though.
  6. To elaborate more on what @toe_head2001 said, you may have installed a pre-v1607 version of Windows 10. Let Windows Update do its thing, and you should be good to go.
  7. There's no tooltips because there's a bug in WinForms which causes the tooltips to constantly blink on and off and... it's just really bad. Not having tooltips sucks, but it sucks way less than the alternative.
  8. 🤦‍♂️ "I don't like the icons and I don't want to get used to them, so let me rant about it for awhile and tell you to revert all the work you did on them." Your brain will get used to them. It's called neuroplasticity. Telling me to throw away months of work just because you don't feel like getting used to the new icons is just lazy and really disrespectful.
  9. Is it even possible for the DDS plugin to know which format (DXT1, etc.) was used for encoding when loading the image?
  10. I'm locking this thread because folks keep trying to post negative/weird "soapbox" comments on it.
  11. I've never heard of any Win7 system ever exhibiting this behavior. It never happened when I was using Win7, back in the day. It's probably something specific to your configuration.
  12. You should really put it up on GitHub. Otherwise it's just a random EXE with no chain of trust.
  13. This could be related to System Restore. Maybe it's got a bug stuck up in its whatever. You might try disabling System Restore, then install Paint.NET, and then re-enable System Restore.
