What works

Basically everything I've used (I've used only really basic functions) except whats written bellow.

What does not

From what I've used I can only tell that after you use the secondary color of the pencil tool it keeps using it and "overwriting" pixels on mouse over, this really makes it hard to drawas you need to fix your drawing if it happens.

Another very important thing:

When you click on Print Preview under the File menu, the program crashes immediately. So watch out not to click on it as any unsaved work will be lost.

Other problems but minor ones:

when you move your mouse with a tool as the pencil or the eraser, it messes up the pixels of your drawing (but you can only see that when you zoom in), it doesn't affect your work, but it can get annoying.

When you zoom in, you can't see the horizontal scrolling bar until you click on where it should be.


What was not tested

I didn't test the airbrush, brush, text, and shapes tools, the printing or flipping/rotating.

Additional Comments

I've tried to use MS Paint for pixel art, so I've only used the tools I really needed.

HowTo / Notes

Take the file mspaint.exe from your Windows XP/NT/2000 system folder, as well as the file MFC42U.DLL. Put these both in the same folder somewhere with wine.
