Hi.

I have just installed paint.net onto a new laptop and in diagnostics within paint.net, I notice there is more than one .dll of the same type

Any reason why?  (see screenshot) I downloaded it from the official website too. Also paint.net is taking around 2 minutes to open after I click on the icon.

 

Windows 10 is up to date and on version 20H2 19042.844.

After 3 days since I posted. Not anybody on here can offer any help or information? Not even the developer?

 

As a footnote, I even bought and installed the store version, that takes even longer to open!

I think what's happened is that you now have two sets of Effects Folders, as you just bought the store version.

 

Hopefully all you need to do is delete one of the folders.  Perhaps someone will have more information about this.

 

I think it explains it better here:  Install Plugins (getpaint.net)

Just to let you know, I also have those multiple .dlls, but no startup problems.

 

Maybe if you post the full Diagnostics report someone will see

something particular to your new system that is problematic.

@sashwilko, all the listed DLL's are needed for work paint.net and do not affect the speed of the program launch. Usually, after the update, paint.net takes longer to start. This is due to the internal configuration of the program parameters.

@Pixey I had this multiple issue before I got the store version.

What is now the average launch time? Free version was 2 minutes. Store version is 3.5 minutes, both instances are without any plugins installed apart from the ones that come with the program. When I had windows 7 and later 8.1, launch time was around 20 seconds. 

 

I now have 8gb RAM compared to 2gb on my previous machine, but it's now far slower to respond.

In my opinion, the reason is related to the version 20H2 of Win10. Although there may be many other reasons.

Yes, it might help (Alt+X -> Diagnostics -> Copy to clipboard).

Number of installed plugins?

 

Is a cold boot + start PDN slower than a restart of PDN?

Those DLLs are normal. They're part of the Microsoft Visual C (vcruntime) and C++ (msvcp) runtime. For whatever reason they have it split across multiple DLLs. Sometimes they add one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

None, only the standard effects that come with PDN. 

 

Cold start is over 2 minutes (Free version) Uninstalled store version now. Never done a restart on this laptop, I give up after clicking the pdn icon 2 or 3 times.

Your CPU is really really old. Wikipedia says it was first introduced in 2009, and even back then it was not really a fast processor.

 

I guarantee that's why the app takes awhile to start up. There's only so much that can be done for something that old, unfortunately.

As a footnote, I even bought and installed the store version, that takes even longer to open! 

 

Store apps cannot use NGEN, which does mean startup time will be worse for the Store version of PDN.

 

NGEN is what the .NET Framework uses for ahead-of-time compilation. You know when the updater says "Please wait, optimizing for your system"? It's doing NGEN, converting the MSIL code over to native machine code. (PDN, mostly written in C#, is compiled into MSIL. So, it goes C# -> MSIL -> native) Without NGEN, the MSIL code must be compiled to native machine code every time you run the app. On a modern/recent CPU it's not that big of a deal, but on an older CPU -- especially on a dual core without HyperThreading like yours -- it can be not-so-great.

On a more modern system, PDN startup should be 1 second or less. I'm not sure why it's taking 2 minutes for you -- I wouldn't expect worse than 20 seconds, and even that would be surprising. So, something else could be getting in the way. I'd recommend disabling antivirus (temporarily!), and seeing if that helps.

 

You can also create something called a performance trace, documented here https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/113249-how-to-submit-a-performance-trace/, which would give me very precise information. You'd want to start tracing (step 3), and then start the app, let it finish starting up, then close the app, and then start the app ... and keep starting/stopping like that until you get at least 60 seconds worth of tracing, then click the Save button (step 4).
