dpyplugin8 will not open

Recommended Posts

dpyplugins8.1 is shown in your screenshot as a folder. You need the '.dll' files within that folder to be directly in Effects.

You can open folders but NOT the '.dll' files.


1. Double-click the dpyplugins8.1 folder and select all files within.
2. Right click and select 'Cut' from the drop-down list.
3. Select the Effects folder, right click and select 'Paste'.
4. Now when the dpyplugins8.1 folder is selected it should say it is empty - if so, it can be deleted.
5. Restart paint.net and check the new effects are working.


Good luck.
