Help with installing plugins


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am trying to download & install some of the plugins for borders & this warning keeps showing up. I am able to download, however when I click to install, that is when the warning comes up. I'm sure it's an error on my end, lol. So if anyone could help or point in the direction of help, I would greatly appreciate!

The plugin should better come as a .dll file when you download it. I see that it does come with a .dll  format but do you have a third-party downloader program that automatically open this .dll file after download? If so, make it stop auto-opening your downloaded file.

 

You don't have to open this .dll file because no program in the computer can open it directly. You have to copy this .dll file from your download folder to C:\Program Files\Paint.net\Effects directory. Make sure Paint.NET is closed when you do this or restart it so that the new plugin DLL gets loaded the next time it opens.

Hi Cocoglow. Welcome! So glad that you were able to sort out the problem with the plugins.

 

Please remember to name your thread appropriately so that if another user has the same question on how to install plugins they can find the answer too. I have done this for you.

 

Hope we get to see you more around here.
