'Portable Document Format' FileType Plugin (.PDF)

Recommended Posts

Hm. I'm sure I had this working on a previous laptop, but just can't make it go currently. I've installed the "slightly older" version of ghostscript as suggested, but still showing the same error whenever I try to open any PDF file:

Application version: 4.2.1


System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

   at OptionBasedFileTypes.OpenFileType.OnLoad(Stream input)

   at PaintDotNet.FileType.Load(Stream input) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 482

   at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Eval[T1,TRet](Func`2 f, T1 arg1) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 158


Any suggestions?

Did you uninstall GhostScript v9.27 before installing the older v9.26? They copy into the same gs folder and I think that the newer version is still trying to load the PDF into Paint.NET.

I would like to confirm that the latest  Ghostscript version 9.27 does not work for opening pdfs with this plugin. 9.26 works.  It took me quite some time to find the solution posted here. Thanks for the wonderful plugin.
