I assume you're familiar with this tutorial: http://boltbait.googlepages.com/install

In Vista, the plugins still go in the same folder, C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects, the only thing that's changed is the interface of the Windows Explorer file view window. I believe that under Vista, the root hard drive shortcut is called "Computer", though I don't have Vista to check. Alternately, I believe you can simply right-click on the Windows icon on the taskbar, select "Explore", and type the path and folder ("C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects") into the Location bar. Drop your DLL files in there.

Again, I don't have a copy of Vista, so I can't be totally sure, but I believe those core Windows functionalities haven't changed in the move from XP to Vista. Perhaps someone who does have Vista can hop on and confirm or correct my steps. Until then, I wish you best of luck!

So, do us a favor and tell us what the addional steps are.

I could update the instructions on my web site if you send me the necessary information/screen shots.

Just hit the "Print Screen" or "PrtSc" button on your keyboard, open Paint.NET or some other graphics program, and press Ctrl+V to paste.

Microsoft includes that functionality with Windows. :-)
