Missing dll (4.0.9)


Recommended Posts

So I installed paint.NET a while ago and never had any problems until I went to start it today. Suddenly I've apparently got a .dll file missing? I tried uninstalling and re-installing, but I can't seem to fix it.

 

I tried just downloading the .dll, but according to the error message, it's missing from MANY locations, and manually adding it to all of these folders seems like far too much--hopefully there's another way to fix it.

 

I've also searched around but it doesn't seem like anyone else is having this problem. 

 

Attached a screenshot of the error message.

You might have an old beta installation of some Visual Studio product ... /hypothesis

 

Installing this should fix it: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

Have you tried OS/Program Files/Paint.net/Pdn Repair ?

 

I tried repairing the program from the control panel and it didn't help, unless you're referring to something else.

That didn't help, either. Same error message. : (

Update:

 

When I shut my computer earlier today, it installed a few updates. I decided to try installing paint.net again just in case and...it seems to be working. I guess whatever was causing the problem was resolved by those updates?

 

In case anyone is curious, I attached a screenshot of all the updates that were installed. 

 

Anyway, I guess this problem is resolved now.

A little info besides the (solved) main problem): If you have Windows 7 and don't want to upgrade to Windows 10, then you should uninstall the following updates, seen in your screenshot:

 

KB3035583

KB2592664

 

Other Win10-related Updates, if existing:

 

KB2976978
KB2990214
KB3012973
KB3074677
KB3123862
