Red ochre Posted December 21, 2021 Share Posted December 21, 2021 I am trying to make some changes to a plug-in written in an older version VS that targetted an older version of Pdn and I'm having troubles setting up the following: 1. Adding Pdn references (PaintDotNet.Base, Core, Data, Effects, .exe). In VS2019 I could add the Pdn references in Solution Explorer/Project/References. How do I do this in VS2022? Do I edit the '.csproj' file directly?... I've just done that ... it now shows errors - mainly conflicts in targetted .net frame work 2. Target Framework. This was previously accessed via Project/Properties/Application in VS2019. I believe I will have to change this from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 to build in Pdn 4.3.4? - Again I can't even find the damn setting! Note. Right click/ properties on the project shows the properties window but no info ... or Application tab?... just blank and not like the MS page below.https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/ide/visual-studio-multi-targeting-overview?view=vs-2022 3. Build Events. In VS2019 these could be accessed via Project/Properties/Build Events. Where do I now find these settings in VS 2022? - I've just edited the paths in .csproj but can't build due to the framework issues. 4. How do I change the black backgound? Not keen on the dark theme. Used to be under View/Settings I think.Solved. Aah - Debug/Options/Theme - that's a strange place to hide it! Any advice would be appreciated. I no longer have Pdn 4.2.16 installed so currently have no way to alter effects built using older versions. I'm sure I'm making this far more complicated than it needs to be. Does anyone have a successful method (baby steps) of updating their older effects to use VS 2022 and Pdn 4.3.4? - a share would be greatly appreciated and might keep my blood pressure down! Many thanks Quote Red ochre Plugin pack.............. Diabolical Drawings ................Real Paintings Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
