Still crashing on startup

Recommended Posts

Ever since version 3, I can't reliably start Paint.NET. Sometimes deleting the registry keys works (once); sometimes stopping Windows Defender works (but I can't be the only person running WD, so why is nobody else seeing this?).

But usually, it just crashes immediately with the following pdncrash.log. On the plus side, I've discovered that The GIMP's pretty good, but I'd quite like to go back to PDN. Any ideas? Anyone?

...and I am enlightened! I haven't installed anything recently, but at least I now know where to look:

So, Font Agent Pro reports no corrupt fonts, but Process Monitor says we're crashing as we load ukai.ttf and uming.ttf. A bit of Googling turns up http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibilit ... 1;msg=5871 , from which I can download a new version of ukai.ttf... and the problem is fixed!

Paint.NET now starts perfectly fine. Thanks for your help.
