Uninstalling Paint .NET Native Images

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

did any one know, if you are uninstalling Paint .NET, that the Native Images did'nt remove from the GAC (Native Image Cache)?

Please read http://msdn2.microsoft.com/de-de/library/bb979071.aspx to take a look into the Native Image Cache.

So, were is the problem? It would be nice, if anybody could explain the reason to me!

Or is it a bug?

Kind Regards

Ok, it's a way to use third party tool's.

But I think it's better to avoid this circumstance!

So, I found the source code from Paint .NET 3.08 (with setup projects) on the internet and for my eyes everything looked well.

There are also a lot of other examples for NGEN wich are similar to the setup project.

I made another project on my machine with the same result.

May be it's a bug from Microsoft?!?!?

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

It is in Window's cache, not Paint.net's.

If you want to clear the cache, use ccleaner.

.NET applications can be compiled from an intermediate form (MSIL) to to native code, which can be cached for better performance. CCleaner doesn't (and shouldn't!) delete these files.

Dirk Biernat: Use C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe if you still need to manually remove the native images.
