Crash caused by viewing fonts


Recommended Posts

The host CLR processes for paint.net may be crashing.

Right after the paint.net crashes, please open the Windows' Event Viewer and look in the Application log. (Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> Application)

The items should be sorted by datetime, so the most recent item should be at the top of the list.

Good/bad news: the application is no longer crashing for some reason, so I'm unable to replicate the crash and get the error. I'll give an update here if it occurs again.

Hang on, I think I found it.
Application: paintdotnet.exe
CoreCLR Version: 6.0.121.56705
.NET Version: 6.0.1
Description: The process was terminated due to an internal error in the .NET Runtime at IP 00007FF8499BD61B (00007FF8497F0000) with exit code c0000006.

Usually when there's a crash with the font list, it's due to a bad/corrupted font. Unfortunately we don't get any information as to which font is causing the issue, but usually it's any that you've recently installed.

 

You can also try running sfc /scannow at an elevated/administrator command prompt. It's possible one of the built-in Windows fonts has become corrupted, or there is other system damage for some reason.

I haven't installed any fonts recently. It never crashed from fonts until now (because of this update, I assume).

I'll see if this fixes anything.

Nothing related to fonts was changed in this release, but I don't know what version you updated from.

I always keep my application up to date, so it'd have to be the last release before this one.

@BenTheMiner is PDN still crashing when you try the font?  Are you using the version 4.3.7?

It's not crashing anymore for some reason. Yes, I am using version 4.3.7. I don't know what the font that was causing the problem is nor did I remove any fonts. It seems to have fixed itself, but I'll give an update if it crashes again.

You've never heard of Gremlins - joke 😁

 

Around here (the forum) we often say we've been visited by Gremlins to mess up our computers.  I do hope you didn't think I was being rude to you 😊
