Paint.NET 4.3.x portable without bundled .NET runtime


Recommended Posts

As far as I can see, the .NET 6.0 runtime is bundled in all the packages provided on Github. Would it be possible to add a package without the runtime at least for the portable version? I do have the desktop runtime installed and don't like the duplication. Microsoft is taking the same direction there as all the electron app developers shipping a 50-100MB chromium runtime with each app. I really don't like that 😈

 

Thanks,

Chris

@Rick Brewster described why self-contained deployment is used in the following post:

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

Making extra packages just adds a lot of extra work for me, and the only thing it solves is that a few people are "less annoyed" by something that doesn't even matter. In fact, it makes things worse for a lot more people because then there's confusion about which one to use. And a "portable" package that requires the installation of other things isn't really "portable," so it defeats the purpose.

Anyway like @null54 pointed out, I already explained why I'm doing things this way and why I'm not currently planning on providing FDD packages. It's just way too much work and confusion with an infinitesimally small benefit for a tiny number of people.
