    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.

    Hello,

    I am still using IrfanView 4.54 (32-Bit) in Windows. As I just found a newer Paint-Plugin-DLL I copied it into the plugins-folder - after having renamed the existing one there to *.old.
    I restarted IrfanView but when invoking the plugin (F12) I get the error message "Can't load PAINT.DLL ..."

    These are the corresponding DLLs:
    old one version 0.4.13.53 size 267.776 B (UPX packed)
    new one version ß0.4.13.70 size 404.480 B (not packed, as from the author's site)

    Of course I also activated and deactivated the plugins via the "installed plugins" menue.

    Does anyone know a solution to this issue?

    Greetings,
    P.

    I get the same results as you from the Beta version.

    The version from Matteo's site seems to be much older (modified July 2010).

    The version numbers are misleading.

    I have version 0.4.13.35 (modified September 2020), which is installed from iview454_setup.exe.

    The latest versions of paint.dll for IrfanView 32bit and 64bit are 0.4.13.55. They can be downloaded from https://www.irfanview.com/plugins.htm .
    There are also other updates for plugins.

    Thank you! That solution with version 0.4.13.55 worked für IrfanView 4.54 (32-Bit).
