Paint.NET icon is there, but isn't there.


Recommended Posts

So, I got a new computer. Everything was going great. Win7HomePrem, 8GB mem, 1TB HDD, 3.01 GHz Intel i3 (Thank You BoltBait, it's awesome). I uninstalled all of the crapware (which wasn't much, oddly) and installed all my programs from before. But when I installed Paint.NET, the icon that came up was the standard Windows app-without-an-icon icon, not the Paint.NET icon.

I figured it was just a problem with the install, but a reinstall and a repair didn't do anything to fix it. And when I right-click and hit "Properties," the icon on the "General" and "Shortcut" panes is the actual PdN icon. (So it's only wrong in folders, the start menu, and pinned on the taskbar- it's correct on the taskbar when running). I tried switching it in "Shortcut," and successfully changed it to the calculator icon, but when I tried to change it back to the one in PaintDotNet.exe, it went back to the app-without-an-icon icon.

This is so ridiculously minor, and I know I can just make one and fix it with no problem, but it seems odd that it won't work correctly.

Actually, as it turns out, I needed a Windows update. I thought I had them all, but apparently I was missing the crucial one that fixed (or jiggled) the problem enough.

Thanks y'all.
