PDN + Vista SP2 = :(


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just installed Vista SP2 beta 1, and it broke Paint.NET - now it's telling me that I need to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or greater... but I'm fairly certain there wouldn't have been a downgrade of .NET in the process of installing SP2.


PDN worked fine before installing Vista SP2, and it works fine on Windows 7b1 as well.

How do you check which version of .NET you have installed, anyway?

PDN isn't tied to a specific version of .NET is it?

(Paint.NET requires the .NET Framework version 2.0 or later.)

Somebody needs to read the definition of "beta:"

Beta testing allows the software to undergo usability testing with users who provide feedback, so that any malfunctions these users find in the software can be reported to the developers and fixed. Beta software can be unstable and could cause crashes or data loss.


Beta version software is likely to be useful for internal demonstrations and previews to select customers, but unstable and not yet ready for release. Some developers refer to this stage as a preview, a prototype, a technical preview (TP) or as an early access. As the second major stage in the release lifecycle, following the alpha stage, it is named after the Greek letter beta, the second letter in the Greek alphabet.

And here's how you can fix it: http://blog.getpaint.net/2008/12/20/how ... -sp2-beta/
