  1. As it turns out, I was not able to uninstall/reinstall/repair .Net 3.5 at all. After a bit of a search I came across a verification tool which did nothing except say things were successfully verified. Then the following was what did the trick for me. I figured I would have to reinstall .Net 3.5 but I did not. I then checked to see if at least Paint.Net was working and it was. So woo hoo!!
  2. which one? 3.5 I suspect? I have 4 and 4.5 as well (being a developer) Thanks
  3. Hello, I went to run today and I am getting... System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' or one of its dependencies. The system cannon find the file specified. File name: 'System.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' at PaintDotNet.Startup.StartPart3() at PaintDotNet.Startup.StartPart2() in D:\src\pdn\pdn_35x\src\PaintDotNet\Startup.cs:line 359 at PaintDotNet.Startup.Main(string[] args) in D:\src\pdn\pdn_35x\src\Paintdotnet\Startup.cs:line 465 WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF. To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusuon!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1. Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging. To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog]. I have tried to uninstall the program as well as repair it. Both fail saying there was some part of the install that did not complete. I even tried it in safe mode and it failed to uninstall there because apparently the uninstall utility was not loaded. It worked last week and the only thing I have installed since then was MongoVUE. I have tried to uninstall it (which was successful) and then try to run/repair/uninstall PDN with the same results as above. I love the program and need to do work on it NOW. But I need to wipe it clean and reinstall it but can't. PLEASE HELP!
  4. Hi Helen, I think it is really close if not exactly what I want. Meaning if you started with just some 2D heart shape and then you made it thick and glossy and then changed your aspect ratio then yes. Please post or link to a tutorial of how you did it. If not, let me try and explain it in your heart graphic. Assume some random 2D shape in this case a heart. Not a line but some sort of polygon. Then apply a thickness to it (in 3D programs I have used before this is called extruding it) with smooth rounded corners/edges and then make it glossy/glass-like. Ideally I would be wanting different rectangles to get this effect applied to them. I am almost thinking that it really wouldn't require any color (obviously white or whatever glass color you want for the shiny part and then some sort of alpha masking) then whatever color is on a lower layer would show through. Another way to explain it would be imagine just a plate of glass on a table. The glass has nice rounded sides all around. I want to essentially take shapes and turn then into glass. Not specificailly giving them any color. Hope that helps and thank you for your reply. Kevin
  5. Hello, I have seen and played around with the glass buttons and that gets me to a certain point. However, I am a programmer and not much of a graphic artist (but I dabble...) and can't get what I want from a button tutorial into what would be more like a plate or a pane of class. So, is there a tutorial I am missing or can someone whip up a plug-in that can take a Layer or a given Color on a Layer or all Shapes on a layer and basically make them look in glass. Ideally rounded on the edges as well. TIA, Kevin
