Paint.NET v3.30 -- Now available!


Recommended Posts

If you absolutely need Paint.NET to have admin privileges, I suggest you set it to run as administrator rather than disabling UAC entirely.

It isnt the fact that it isnt working without UAC, more or less that it turned on UAC without asking me. Not cool, because I had to deal with the troubles explained above. I, as the owner of my pc, will make adjustments as I, not Paint.NET, see fit.

If UAC was already on, then it could have prompted a, um, prompt. But unless Rick has been severely changing the installer, it did not turn UAC on.

Most changed made by MSCONFIG only last for one reboot unless you specifically tell it otherwise, so if you used that to disable UAC in the first place, that change might have been nixed on the next reboot.

If you recently installed service pack 1 on Vista, that also could have done it. I don't know if it actually does, but it does seem like something MS would do.

Paint.NET doesn't have any code in it that changes your UAC settings. That's a fact.

You're better off turning off the UAC prompts and having it auto-elevate, than you are by turning off UAC entirely. Allowing your web browser to run with administrator privileges is equivalent to you begging to have your computer destroyed by viruses. I'm not exaggerating.

Dangit! I was hoping this wouldn't come out before all plugins were updated. Guess I have to switch now...

The plugins from Madjik, Pyro, Ed Harvey and Pyrochild all work for me in the latest version.

Really? I switched back to 3.22, so I didn't really pay attention. Downloading now.

Rick,

Note that the dotPDN download site still offers Paint.NET v3.22 and Paint.NET v3.30 Release Candidate 1.

However, the new version is downloadable when editing url manually to http://www.dotpdn.com/files/Paint.NET.3.30.zip

Wrong. It is offering 3.30. Your browser is caching the older version of the page, just hit Refresh.
