paint.net 4.0.6 is now available!


Recommended Posts

OK, if it is not possible to distinguish different kind of XALM files then XALM is a bad format to store shapes!

In the moment plugins may ask the user for temporary admin permission to store the files. This is not too difficult to implement.

It's not about how difficult it is to implement.

 

Please stop flooding this thread with discussions about this design decision. Start a separate thread if you want to talk about it.

There you go :D

 

I look at this and found what's causing the performance stall. I should be able to easily fix this for the next update. Thanks :)

 

It has to do with how I'm creating some masks while rendering the shape preview (what shows up in the dropdown list and in the history). If I make a few small changes to the appearance, the performance problem vanishes.

Hello-

 

I've been using paint.net 4.05 since release with no problems.  I let it auto-update to 4.06 on close today and then it would no longer run.  I uninstalled and downloaded the installer directly.  It installed but wouldn't run.  I uninstalled, rebooted, and installed again, still no joy.  Uninstalled and went back to 4.05 (I had saved the installer), and it came right up.

 

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1

 

Error message capture below.

 

The message references corrupt memory, hence the reboot.

 

Thanks for the years of releases and a fantastic product Rick!

stikle, Are you caught up on your Windows Updates? I've seen some weird* crashes lately that were fixed by making sure of that

 

Also, it looks like it's crashing while trying to show the crash dialog. So there's still a crash log.

 

Try this:

 

1. Open 4.0.5, go to Settings -> Diagnostics, then click on "Open crash log folder". Make a note of its location.

2. Close 4.0.5, install 4.0.6 and get it to crash

3. Open up the crash log folder and send me the latest crash log (post a reply here and attach it)

 

* "weird" ... as in, I have received crash logs that made me think "uhhhhh reality isn't supposed to work that way" :)

Well, unfortunately, I don't have control of Windows Updates - those are managed by IT.  I can't even check for updates even though I have local admin.  They've got it locked out VIA GPO.  I assume they are up to date.

 

I just find it odd that I can install PDN 4.05 with no problem.

 

Anyway, here's the crash log.  I had to rename it to .txt as the forum doesn't allow .log file attachments.

 

Thanks,

Seth

Build 4.0.6 appears to DEMAND .NET Framework 4.5 and will ignore presence of .NET Framework 4.6.81.

 

4.0.5 and earlier builds could be extracted to just the file set and run. 4.0.6 claims .NET is corrupted (it's not, code to check .NET version doesn't handle 4.6.81 properly) and wants to run PdnRepair.

 

How to bypass this check?

I just updated today and got the same error. 

 

 

I followed your procedure to reterieve the crash log and I found my logs in %AppData%\Local\paint.net\CrashLogs

I pasted the last one here: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=5Qd5MJJx

 

I also attached a screenshot of the error.

 

Hopefully the similiarties between the both of ours and the difference between those in which the program works will be enough to figure out what went wrong. 

 

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 with all updates from windows update installed.

 

By the way the computer has been rebooted.  I have an nvidia geforce 555m & intel hd 3000 with up to date drivers on my laptop.

Try updating your video card driver (nvdxgiwrapx.dll may cause crashes, which I see in the crash log). If it still won't work, please take this into a new thread in the Troubleshooting section.

I'm looking forward to trying these new shapes that can be added.

 

Its interesting what I can do with them with my Paint.NET drawings because I rely on shapes to make parts of drawings so they are symmetrical.

I am needing to corner pin a shape to another shape.  Is this function available in Paint?

In Paint.NET, if I'm understanding your meaning of corner pin, then yes. Its posible to corner pin a shape inside another shape. One shape on one layer and another shape on a second layer that you could use Layers>>Rotate Zoom to tweak the perspective of the shape.
