Can't save anything

Recommended Posts

I have a problem, suddenly out of nowhere, I have no idea why, but when I try to save files I always get this message. Does anyone have a solution

There's something incorrectly configured with the security settings for the registry. I don't know why. It's not something Paint.NET does.


You might be able to get away with deleting that registry key ( HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Paint.NET ). This will force it to be recreated the next time you launch Paint.NET and maybe it'll have the correct security settings then.


I've been seeing a handful of reports of this lately for some reason. I may just patch the code to ignore this error, although it'll come at the cost of Paint.NET no longer remembering your Save Configuration settings for each file type.
