Incorrect DDS mime type?


Recommended Posts

Heya,

 

First of all, I'm not sure this was done by paint.net! But in my Registry, it is set as the dds default application ("Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.dds"), and the dds MimeType is set to "image/vnd.ms-dds". Which is wrong however, the correct MimeType is "image/vnd-ms.dds" (switched dash/dot). See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dn424129(v=vs.85).aspx

 

Again, I'm not sure it was written there by paint.NET, but it's incredibly hard to find out where it might've come from, and p.N seems to be the most likely culprit at this point.

Would be awesome if someone with access to the source could take the time to check the installer… Thanks!

PS: Why I found this? Don't ask… xP

If you really want to know, it sounds like you're technically minded enough to figure it out on your own...  Load up a new Windows VM, and compare the registry key before and after a paint.net installation.
