Moving PDN


Recommended Posts

I am fully aware that this is not the 'right' way to do it, but I was wondering...

If you change [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Paint.NET\TARGETDIR] to the new location, would the updater etc understand the changes?

I would write plugins, if I knew what kind of plugins were needed.. :(

I've messed with regedit before. I had to edit shell32 to download the Longhorn Inspirit Bricopack. And I couldn't download anything that involved virus protection, cookies, or shell repair software. So my guess is that it probably wouldn't work.

Why do you want to edit anyway?

Don't worry, I wasn't actually going to do it, I was only wondering

I have no need to move Paint.NET

It is said that the updater does not work after moving Paint.NET, so I thought that changing that location-key might solve it..

Still, I will have to try this in a VM
