Running Paint.NET on a x64 OS.


Recommended Posts

I noticed an issue when running Paint.NET on Vista x64. While the program will start wonderfully, it's running in native x64. Which his causing an issue because the plugins I have, are all compiled for 32bit.

So, any idea how I can start Paint.NET in 32-bit mode rather than x64?

It's driving me nuts not being able to use the VMF plugin!

Most plugins for Paint.NET are bitness-agnostic, which means they should work equally well in 32-bit and 64-bit. If a plugin doesn't work on 64-bit then it is probably doing some interop with a 32-bit DLL, and you should talk to the author to ensure that their plugin works on 64-bit.

By VMF plugin, to you mean the VTF plugin? http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=3837

Oh, sorry for putting it in the wrong forum! oops!

And, Yeah, I meant VTF... You know how close M and T are on the keyboard >>>

Anyway, I guess I'll post in the VTF thread concerning the issue then. However, is there any way to run Paint.NET in 32-bit mode from a x64 OS? The installer doesn't give any options otherwise.

There is a command-line utility called corflags.exe that comes with the .NET Framework SDK. You should be able to use it to force Paint.NET to run in 32-bit mode, I think the command is something like "corflags PaintDotNet.exe /32bit+"
