installing plug-ins with an installer on MS Store version

Recommended Posts

I have the Microsoft Store version of Paint.net.  Many Plug-Ins onlt have an installer to download.  When i try to install, i get a message that Paint.net is not installed on my computer.

I've already rewritten my plugin installer to work with the store version.  I'm working with Microsoft to get it into the Windows Store.

 

Once I've done it, I will be sharing my code with the other plugin authors so they can do the same thing.

 

Just be aware, this is going to take a while.  Microsoft isn't known for moving quickly on anything.

To create a Store shortcut, right click on the app in the start menu then Pin to Start. That creates a tile in the Start menu. You can launch the app by clicking the tile, or drag the tile to the taskbar.

 

Oh and BTW, you can run both versions side-by-side. I use one as a plugin-lite version :grin:

Don't see an advantage to the Store one

 

There's a big one ... providing a little bit of give back for all the time and effort gone into providing PDN

I gave up doing that.  All my plugins were duplicated in the free version and I couldn't live with that.  It drove me jittery ... :SettingsTools16:

The problem is...... there is no way for us normal citizens to get plugins when we use our hard earned money on things like this..... were not all huge experienced coders ;-;

 

RIP the free version download is BROKEN go check my other post to see more info.

Nothing is broken and there IS the normal working way.

Normal citizens should simply READ the given instructions.
