Crashing on startup

Recommended Posts

I know you probably get tons of these posts...but..here goes.

I've been getting an error when starting the program, telling me to check a report on my desktop.

I've gotten this before, and it's gone away in about an hour or so..but this one has been sticking around for about 3 days now...so I figured I'd drop by and post it here:

Any idea on whats happening?

I reinstalled the software just to see if that did anything, and it didn't, so I get the feeling it's something else on my computer that's not agreeing with paint.net D:!

My guess is that you're using WindowBlinds, right? If so, you'll need to switch to another theme, or turn off theming for PaintDotNet.exe.

The reason this is happening is that the theme you're using was authored incorrectly, and has a bug in it.
