Saving file on WSL2 mount

Recommended Posts

HI guys,


I'm using the new WSL2 (with Ubuntu 20). Opening, and "Saving as" from/to the WSL mount (\\wsl$\...) works perfectly fine with paint.net, but saving produces always this error:


Application version: paint.net 4.2.12

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): ReplaceFileW() returned FALSE (50, ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED)
   at PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.NativeUtilities.ThrowOnWin32Error(String message, Int32 lastWin32Error, Boolean alwaysThrow) in D:\src\pdn\src\SystemLayer\NativeUtilities.cs:line 89
   at PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.FileSystem.ReplaceFile(String replacedFileName, String replacementFileName, String backupFileName) in D:\src\pdn\src\SystemLayer\FileSystem.cs:line 48
   at PaintDotNet.IO.SaveTransaction.Commit() in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\IO\SaveTransaction.cs:line 287
   at PaintDotNet.Controls.DocumentWorkspace.<>c__DisplayClass246_1.<DoSaveImpl>b__6() in D:\src\pdn\src\PaintDotNet\Controls\DocumentWorkspace.cs:line 2794
   at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Try(Action f) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 174


I guess ReplaceFileW is not available on WSL2 mounts. Not a show stopper but rather annoying^^


Thanks for the awesome application!

I put out a hotfix for this: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116563-problem-after-saving-a-picture/?do=findComment&comment=572295 



Please let me know if it works for you. I plan on releasing a proper 4.2.13 update soon.
