jebllard03,

Try again, following these instructions, exactly.

Boltbait plugins:

Download the zipped file to your Desktop or Downloads folder.

Open the zip by left-clicking it.

Copy/paste the plugin files to your Effects folder.

Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects

BoltBait Plugins

=======================================================

Okay, I've deciphered the screenshot.

It says "The image type is not recognized and cannot be opened."

There are a few things that could cause that.

What specifically did you do immediately before that error message came up?

For example, did you double-click a plugin file?

Did this happen when you clicked on the zipfile?

Something else?

Is there a way to automatically copy plugins to paint.net/effects?

I want to sync the plugins of two machines automatically (using Unity). One is an XP machine, other is a Windows 7 machine.

On the XP machine things go smoothly, Unity runs and is able to copy all the dlls to and from the plugin directory, but on the Windows 7 machine, I get an "Access denied" even when I run the synchronization script as an Administrator. I understand that this is a security feature and I don't want to disable that, if possible.

To answer my own question: You can set a scheduled task to run when a user logs in, and set that task to run at the highest privileges. Of course you can make the task run at certain times as well.
