What works

Most things work as expected, however, crucial features often don't work (eraser, save, text...)

What does not

A problem with the Text tool might be due to Font misconfiguration, but doesn't work anyway for me. The Eraser tool crashes Paint.Net and I'm not able to save files. An unexpected keypress crashedd the app too.


To install, I had to use the .NET 4.7 workaround. It consists of installing .NET 4.0 under Windows XP, then overriding
mscoree.dll as native and setting the OS to Windows Vista or Windows 7 (versions above reject the install) and
installing .NET 4.7.1. After that, a normal install should work.

What was not tested

Opening and creating new files.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Extensive testing and maybe fixing would be great, as I'm not sure if the problem with the eraser tool is only mine.
