Paint.net can't open this image from My Documents


Recommended Posts

That isn't a crash though. It isn't even in Paint.NET's code. The filename is bizarreified for some reason.

Can you provide a screenshot where the filename you're interested is in the picture? I can't figure out what the file is you're trying to open with all those %255's in the name.

It's actually %255C, which would be decimal code 9564. Which is definitely not a space (which is 32 or %20).

Ralph Jonkers, are you able to open this image in any other program that goes through the standard "Open" dialog box? Like, for instance, regular Paint?

Hi, Actually I'm not opening a file / an image yet. (your new title isn't accurate there for) The thing I do is _browse_ for a file. Let me explain the steps.

1. Start Paint

2. Click File - Open. Paint opens a dialogbox where I can browse for a file. (I noticed that the default location that shows is the location where the last image I worked with is. For this error to occur make sure the dialogbox does not open with My Documents - My Pictures but with My Desktop). Paint displays the Open dialogbox like this http://www.jonkers.net/audio/bug2.jpg

3. Now click on My Documents on the left hand navigation (from top to bottom: My Recent Documents, Desktop, My Documents, My computer, My network)

4. Error like the one in my first post occurs. Paint does not crash but is simply frozen. I have to end the program by closing it from the task manager.

Ps: although this is my first post on this forum I enjoyed using Paint.Net from the early 2.x version. I also used almost every beta / RC prior to installing the final 3.0 version today. Never had any problems with it.

So this error happens only in Paint.NET, or does it happen in other software as well? Like in Paint, for instance. It really sounds to me like its the cause of some shell extension or customization, as that error isn't even from Paint.NET, it's from Windows.
