Plugins Not Working

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've tried uninstalling paint.net and reinstalling it, I've tried moving the plugins from the paint.net/effects folder to directly underneath the paint.net folder, I've tried unblocking the effect in the properties/permissions tab, tried everything. The plugins don't show up under the adjustments or effects menus in paint.net.  I'm running win 8.  I do notice that I have a 'staging' folder now that I'm not sure I had before I uninstalled and reinstalled, the 'staging' folder is lit up in blue color and files inside that folder are blue as well.  Any ideas?


Found the fix, I uninstalled, then searched for all instances of paint.net and paintdotnet and removed them.  Then I reinstalled.  Then I copied the effects i'd already downloaded into the effects folder found at this location "C:\Program Files\PaintDotNet.exe".  When I opened paint.net there the plugins were!  joy  :0)
