  1. Your video card (GPU) driver is probably old/broken. I'd focus on that.
  2. It's just aliasing. Nothing harmful. The cure would be worse than the cold.
  3. This isn't actually a new issue. I've had a bug filed for awhile. Thanks though!
  4. For example, this post is directly next to yours and has the right solution ... https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116529-error-during-installation/ Please don't invent your own solution. It will just break things further.
  5. I have no idea why you did that. The solution to the MSI error is well known. You will still have problems updating to newer versions, you haven't actually fixed anything.
  6. This is a hotfix for a few important issues that have come to light with the 4.2.11 release. If you’re using the Windows Store release, you should get the update automatically within the next 24 hours. You can also force an update check by following these instructions. For the Classic release, you should be offered the update automatically within the next week or so. You can get the update sooner by going to ⚙ Settings → Updates → Check Now. You can also download and install it directly from the website. Changes since 4.2.11: Fixed an error that was preventing some old PDN images from loading (reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116501-error-opening-older-pdn-files/) Fixed a crash in the new selection outline renderer (due to misaligned Push/PopAxisAlignedClip calls) Changed saving to use the ReplaceFile Win32 API, which improves its compatibility Fixed an EndOfStreamException error that prevented some JPEGs from opening (thanks @null54 for the fix!) Enjoy!
  7. This is a hotfix for a few issues that have come to light with the 4.2.11 release. To get this update, make sure you have "Also check for pre-release (beta) versions" enabled in Settings, and then click on the Check Now button. (Unfortunately alpha/beta releases are not currently available for the Microsoft Store version of the app). You can also download install this build directly: https://www.getpaint.net/files/zip/test/paint.net.4.212.7453.40940.install.zip Changes since 4.2.11: Fixed an error that was preventing some old PDN images from loading (reported here: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116501-error-opening-older-pdn-files/) Fixed a crash in the new selection outline renderer (due to misaligned Push/PopAxisAlignedClip calls) Changed saving to use the ReplaceFile Win32 API, which improves its compatibility Fixed an EndOfStreamException that prevented some JPEGs from opening (thanks @null54 for the fix!) If all goes well, I plan to finalize and publish the 4.2.12 update sometime this weekend.
  8. Here's a build with a hotfix: Install that and this will be fixed. The fix will also be a part of the final/public release of version 4.2.12, coming soon. This issue was only affecting PDN images saved with Paint.NET v3.5.8 or earlier (AFAICT).
  9. I'm working on a hotfix for this, stay tuned
  10. You can't install Paint.NET to an external disk, whether it's a USB stick or a hard drive. This is blocked by the installer because it caused all sorts of problems. It was really a complete disaster.
