  1. 1 - No. There's nothing to "fix" because this is intentional. The benefits of self-contained deployment far outweigh those for framework-dependent deployment. It would save you some disk space, but cause a lot of problems for myself and for a large number of other users. 2 - No. The files that are downloaded have their digital signatures verified before they're installed. If you want to do a full offline installation then you're going to need to track down the prerequisites yourself. It's not that hard. In addition, the prerequisites that do get downloaded are really only needed on unpatched Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 systems, neither of which you are probably running.
  2. I'm not adding ARM32 support. That's a huge amount of work for a tiny number of users on a completely unsupported platform and configuration. Very bad idea.
  3. I think @toe_head2001 solved something similar based on an Issue that I filed for CodeLab when I did the AssemblyLoadContext stuff
  4. I was able to reproduce this, and I figured out why it's happening. Easy fix, and I should be pushing out a 4.3.1 update fairly soon since this is a pretty important bug for Win7 users. Win10 is unaffected.
  5. If you open the Default Programs control panel (I think that's what it's called in Win7...), is there an entry for paint.net? What file types does it have listed? (screenshot plz)
  6. The hostility is meant to be towards the AV product, not the person reporting the issue with it. They just cause so many false positives, and have really reached the point where they're basically malware themselves. My strong recommendation is to use only Windows Defender. I did receive another e-mail from someone saying that 4.2.16 on their system just started getting flagged by Malwarebytes, so it looks like they just have a bug. Please report this to them.
  7. No; it needs to be a string (REG_SZ) whose value is "true" (without the quotes)
  8. You just need to install the updated version of @null54's plugin
  9. I just fixed this and pushed out a new build of the web installer, so you can try again and it should work. (see also: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/118670-app-crashes-when-trying-to-update-to-43/ )
  10. Thanks! I'll push out an updated web installer in just a minute
  11. I've been getting a handful of reports of this. Super weird error, definitely a bug in SharpZipLib, but I think I have a fix. Can you try using this installer to see if it works? https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/test/paint.net.4.300.7936.30455.install.anycpu.web.zip
  12. That DLL isn't part of the Desktop Runtime. It appears to be part of the ASP.NET Runtime (https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet/5.0). What happens if you also install this nuget package? (you did install System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization into your solution/project via nuget, right?) https://www.nuget.org/packages/System.Data.SqlClient
  13. @midora is the one to know the answer to this. However, he needs to first provide an updated version that is compatible with the latest Paint.NET update, 4.3, and .NET 5.
  14. I had a report of this during beta but I couldn't reproduce it What type of image is this happening with? Is it all of them, or just some of them? (e.g., JPG? PNG? PDN? GIF?) What version of Windows are you using?
  15. Quite true, I'll fix that As for the SSL/TLS error, have you configured your system in any particular way with respect to SSL/TLS? I seem to recall there may be a registry setting for forcing .NET to not permit the use of older versions of TLS or something. For now you can use the offline installer (links above), but I'd also like to get to the bottom of your error so I can fix it for anyone else who might bump into this.
