Suggestion: Notification to user on open of .DLL

Recommended Posts

There have been many questions regarding installation of plugins with problems as users have tried to open the plugin with Paint.NET and I predict there are many more without the courage to ask.

I am proposing a new mini-feature to Paint.NET. When a .dll is opened, a messagebox would be shown explaining to the user that informs them that this is not how to install plugins and gives them a link to the appropriate information on the web and/or explains to them how to install plugins.

Your Thoughts?

But when people try to edit the canvas later, won't Paint.NET try to overwrite the DLL with the image data?


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
