paint.net 4.2.10 is now available!

Recommended Posts

This small update fixes a few important bugs, most notably with installations that directly use the MSI file for deployment (e.g. AD/GPO).


If you’re using the Windows Store release, you should get the update automatically within the next 24 hours. You can also force an update check by following these instructions.


For the Classic release, you should be offered the update automatically within the next week or so. You can get the update sooner by going to ⚙ Settings → Updates → Check Now. You can also download and install it directly from the website.


Changes since 4.2.9:

  • Fixed: Installations that directly use the MSI (e.g. AD/GPO deployments) no longer need to run the repair process immediately after installation. Some important DLLs were not being updated because while their assembly version was different, their file version was unchanged, so Windows Installer incorrectly skipped over them.

  • Fixed: Loading an image with an enormous photoshop:DocumentAncestors node in the XMP metadata will no longer hang the app
  • Fixed a rare crash in the auto-updater UI related to font initialization
  • Improved performance when clicking OK on an effect or adjustment dialog that has already completed part of its rendering

Thank you @Rick Brewster!  I am doubly grateful as this version has enabled me to use null's Gmic plugin again.

Gmic wouldn't work for me on version 4.2.9 (it kept crashing PDN), but it worked on 4.2.8.   Weird, huh?

Well, anyway, THANK YOU! <3

Yes, that's weird. I wouldn't expect it. There's probably a bug in the GMIC plugin and you should report the crashes to the author!

@Rick Brewster...That's the first thing I did. Null said the communication between PDN and Gmic was broken and he didn't know why. I sent him the crash log.

But, things are okay now and I'm happy.
