Paint.net crashes when trying to change language (fixed)

Recommended Posts

Normally you can navigate to the crash log via the Settings dialog in the Diagnostics section .......


But because it's Settings that's crashing, you can go to C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Local\paint.net\CrashLogs


Also, are you using Paint.NET version 4.0.21 (the latest) ? There were some older versions that crashed in Settings because of a WPF bug ...

@toe_head2001  @Rick Brewster   Oh that's weird, I thought I did add it... I added it now! 


The crash log is mostly in Dutch though, I doubt it will actually help you. 


Yes I'm using the latest version :)

Edit: Just tried to find the crash log through the way you mentioned, but it's not in my paint.net folder O.O

I added the error message I keep getting in the OP though

You have Paint.NET installed in your Documents directory?

Well I installed it and then moved the folder. On my old computer it was the same, and worked fine. I like it because it's easier for me to organize it. I installed it in DATA because my C : doesn't have a lot of room, so I save everything in my DATA and external harddrive. Could the moving of the folders be the reason it's crashing?

There's your problem right there.


Stop that!


Paint.NET is designed only to run from the folder where you install it.

Well bloody potato, didn't know that xD all right I'll just reinstall in a different folder then and see if that works, thanks man!
