Support for Windows 11?


Recommended Posts

Hi - just installed the Windows 11 Beta

 

Getting an exception System.IO.FileNotFoundException - Could not load File or Assembly PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.Native.X64 when I try and load Paint.Net (Windows Store version)

 

Thanks

Windows 11 should work fine, there's just some button rendering that needs to be updated to look better.

 

Are you running on an ARM64 device? e.g. Surface Pro X.

 

The reason I ask is that Windows 10 on ARM64 supports x86 emulation, therefore the Store would've installed the x86 version of the app. Windows 11 supports x64 emulation on ARM64, so it will need to install the x64 version of the app (until 4.3 is released, then it's all native ARM64). But if you try to run the x86/Store version of the app on an x64-supporting system, the app will run as x64 and try to load the native x64 binaries. And fail.

 

So you might just need to uninstall the app and reinstall it, via the Store app.
