URGENT: Paint dot net free ver NOT WROKING

Recommended Posts

Okay Okay, i know i have the payed version, and thats because the free version wasnt working and it still isnt, 

 

basically when i go to https://www.getpaint.net/download.html  and i go to https://www.dotpdn.com/ nothing happens.... it just asked me to buy it or head back to getpaint.net to download it

 

IT MAKES ME WANNA PULL MY HAIR OUT

 

the reason i want the free version is because microsoft store apps don't allow us access to the app folders WindowsApps, and when i try to paste a plugin DLL into the paint.net main folder, it just says its not allowed

if i had the free version it would be much easier to add plugins instead of spending hours trying to De-rank Trusted-installer and Up-rank ME so i can add plugins

 

In the photos i attached you can see i go to getpaint.net and i click download and it brings me to a page to get free or payed version, then i get free, and i go to DotPDN, and soon after it asked to get free version from getpaint.net and basically THE SITES JUST GO IN A BIG CIRCLE AND NO DOWNLOAD IS AVAILABLE

PLEASE SOMEONE FIGURE THIS OUT:cry::boo:

No need to overreact.  Everything's working fine.

 

You're probably just clicking on the wrong link.

 

Starting at https://www.getpaint.net click on the circled link:

Then, on the download page, click on the circled link:

Finally, click on the dotPDN link:

Easy as pi.

 

Now, if all you really want to do is add plugins to your store version, read this page: https://blog.getpaint.net/2017/09/29/paint-net-is-now-available-on-the-windows-store/

There are instructions on how to do it under the heading "What about plugins".

Thanks so much for the info. I have spent too much time trying to get my 'dll' files into PDN. 

 

Best wishes to you and yours, Pat

I had purchased PDN from MS Store and even with the link that was given, I still could not find a place for 'dll' files.

 

Then, MS says there are NO REFUNDS.

 

I did download the freebie program.  I am sorry it was not feasible for you to ask for a $5.00 donation rather than give any money to MS. But, if I may, I would vote for you to request the donation and leave any store out of the mixture. I will give you $5 as well.

 

I am off to get my dlls (I had issues with my Dell and they REPLACED my HD.) Ugh. 

 

May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined.  

Pat
