Paint.net crashes when I start it (V3.05).

Recommended Posts

I just installed the version 3.05 (I have never installed/used Point.net before).

I also have .net framework 2 installed and have even tried to repair it to see if it can fix the problem.

Every time I start the prog. I get an error message "There was an unhandled error... blablabla, see crash log".

Here is the log:

Please see this post for more information: http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewt ... light=hook

Disabling these types of utilities is the only way to fix this. Macro utilities are the most common culrprit, but not the only kind. So you will need to find which application you have running (usually a background application, quite often sitting in the tray) that is causing this problem.

I recommend you contact the author of that software and report this bug to them. Even if you don't end up using Paint.NET, it is still an error in their software, and others will benefit from a fix.

Or, maybe they already have an updated version that works correctly.
