PDN Crashes After Startup


Recommended Posts

As soon as I open Paint.net, just after everything has loaded, I get a pop-up window which says:


And when I press OK, the program closes. The PDNcrash file says:

I am an illustrator at a skyscraper website and this error has become quite frustrating. :)

The visual style you are using was authored incorrectly. My guess is that you're using WindowBlinds. Find a different visual style that doesn't cause this crash -- all the official ones work fine, for instance (Luna, Windows Classic).

It isn't anything on their part, it's the theme itself. I downloaded it from another site. The theme used to be available on Wincustomize a few years ago but was removed in mid 2004. I have changed the theme anyway, that one was getting old. I'll make a note to exclude it if I use the theme again though.
