    Default PAINT.DLL Missing

    Hi, the latest plugins 4.50 and 4.51 dont have the paint.dll with them.
    When pressing F12 I get:

    Can't load PAINT.DLL Please install Plugins from Irfanview homepage

    I have installed 4.50 and yesterday I installed 4.51 but to no avail and the zip archive doesn't contain the PAINT.DLL

    The Plugins have to be installed separately.

    I know i am using irfanview since many years.
    i have unzipped the plugins to the plugins-directory. And I have checked the contents of the zip file. There is no paint.dll included.

    I see the Paint.dll plugin, but it's in the IrfanView Setup.exe I also see one in iview451_x64_setup.exe

    On the Plugins page it says:

    Note: A normal IrfanView version includes the following (most important) PlugIns: Effects, Paint, Icons, Slideshow-EXE, RegionCapture, JPG-Transform, Video, Metadata, Tools.

    I just noticed that you're using a Linux distribution. Maybe that has something to do with it? The Paint plugin works for me in 32-bit and 64-bit. The 64-bit Paint.dll is 632 Kb, which is much bigger than the 32-bit version.
