Recommended Posts

when i click File > Acquire > From Scanner Or Camera, it says "The Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) library, "wiaaut.dll" is unavailable" and then the help thing. i went to help but didnt find anything useful. also the WIA services is started according to services.msc

i am also using Windows XP and i have a scanner which supports WIA.

also wiaaut.dll is in the Paint.NET Program Files Folder

wiaaut.dll is damaged, missing, or corrupt.

Go to your Paint.NET installation folder, and copy wiaaut.dll to C:\WINDOWS\system32. This should fix it. If windows gives you a message about overwriting something, ignore this message.

Fixed, thanks!

this was in a beta and has already been fixed.

I'm using the latest build: not so fixed, isn't it? :D

also, try not to revive old topics.

It's good practice to SEARCH before open a new question :!:

you are using 2.64 right? cause it works like a charm here.

Yes.

His windows system file for WIA was corrupt, not the local library.

The library was missing at all. I'm on an nLited Windows, so I suspect I removed it while nLiting :)

Now everything works, thankyou very much!
