Unable to start PDN

Recommended Posts


Finally I reached the point when I thought I'd give PDN a spin... Well, out of luck :)

Can anybody give me a hint? Tenku! :)

Hehe, tablet not plugged in sounds easy, but unfortunately nope, not that. :) It is plugged in all the time (hmmm, I didn't try without it yet) and the proof - zbrush works :)

It seems, PDN will not be friends with me :( I only have the base vista fontset installed yet - no errors there, repaired the .NET packages, 1.1, 2.0 compact, 3.5 - no use. uninst, reinst - no use. I even took back the OC for a test (although the system is very stable OC-ed). Strange thing I had no issue with any other .NET application so far, and I try to keep my system clean anyways.

Tricky one, ha? :)

Thanks for the tips so far
