Can't print and can't search the help file

Recommended Posts

So I downloaded a photo opened up in paint.net and hit the print button and now this happens:

 

The Windows Acquistion Library wiaaut.dll is missing. Please read the help file...

 

So I click on the question mark icon in the top right and I am greeted with this:

 

There was an error launching the link.

 

If there are not solutions to these I will dump this program.

Either the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service is disabled, or wiaaut.dll really is missing.

 

1) Check the if the service is started in services.msc

2) Ensure wiaaut.dll is present in C:\Windows\System32

If it missing use the sfc utility https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026529/windows-10-using-system-file-checker

By the way, you gain nothing by using Paint.NET to print photos.  Paint.NET uses the Printing Wizard that's build into Windows.  Right clicking on the photo in the Windows Explorer, and selecting Print will do the same thing as printing from Paint.NET.
