    Hi Smeagol71,

    I don't have an answer for this problem but suggest you post this message (and any other Corel Painter technical problems) at The PainterFactory, in the Painter Discussions area (click the tab at the top of the page) > Corel Painter Product Discussion forum category > Got a Question? forum.

    The Got a Question? forum is the best place to discuss technical questions and concerns with Corel Painter users and the Corel Painter Development Team.

    Good luck!

    Too bad, I only have Painter X.

    Mines is going nuts, and so is my computer!

    Diabla,

    If your post above is in reference to something in my original post in this thread, that information pertains to all Corel Painter versions from Painter 6 through the current version, Painter X and Painter X.1.

    If that's not what you're referring to, please be more specific.

    Again, if you're not able to solve your problems with help from other users here in this forum, post your problems at The PainterFactory and, again, be very specific. They won't be able to help without all of the pertinent details.

    Thank you. I am really cpu illiterate so I was on the verge of trashing painter and going back to Photoshop, but this really helped :]

    Hey there. Glad to be a part of this forum!
    Do you have any experience configuring Painter 11?
    I am running that version on Windows 7 64 bit edition, and I am getting some pretty nasty lag. (went with 11 because X does not natively install on 7)

    I have already taken it through the guide, but alas, still some serious issues. I know it's not a hardware problem, as you don't get much more powerful than my PC, so the only options I can think of are either my file size, or software config.

    To ensure that I take file size into consideration, what dpi do you recommend for gallery-quality print, without having the program performing slowly?

    what do you mean? I was planning to upgrade from vista to win 7, but I don't want to purchase painter 11 unless the upcoming patch fixes most of issues I've had with it.

    on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
    four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace

    If you upgrade to 7-64 bit, you can run X(10) fine in XP-Mode, but I decided to upgrade to 11 anyway.

    Thanks for the tips.

    I made a custom shortcut and batch file for deleting the script file and invoke Painter X on desktop. It works out well for me.

    It make a copy of "Painter Scripts.scripts"
    Delete the script file
    Start Painter X

    Whenever you start Painter X, it has no overloading excessive scripts on memory.


    The below is the batch content RunPainterX.bat

    Test the batch file whether it works in command window.
    To do it, start > Run > type "cmd"
    It will launch a command window.
    Go to the batch file directory. I assume, your log-in directory is good choice.
    It's "CDocuments and Settings\penguin" in my case

    Open Notepad or editor, copy and paste the below content.
    Replace "CDocuments...\penguin" to "your working directory."
    Save as your_batchfile_name.BAT (BAT is batch file extension for Windows XP. BAT file runs like executable file)

    Go to the Painter X installation directory and select "Painter X.EXE", press right mouse button, select copy. "Copy of Painter X.EXE" will create. Select this and rename it as "PainterX.EXE" because START command won't recognize "Painter X.EXE" (I couldn't figure it out why it's not working.)

    Go back to the command window where the batch file created.
    Type the batch file.
    Cyour_working_directory\> yourfile.bat

    Painter X would start if everything is done accordingly.

    Then, go to the directory where 'Painter Scripts.scripts' is. There should be "Painter Scripts.scripts.bak", which is the backup file of 'Painter Scripts.scripts' by the batch file before it deletes old script file.

    --

    Hope it helps.


    RunPainterX.bat
    :: Remove the "Painter Scripts.scripts" file before starting "Painter X"

    @echo off

    SET script_file="CDocuments and Settings\penguin\Application Data\Corel\Painter X\Default\Painter Scripts.scripts"

    IF EXIST %script_file% (
    COPY %script_file% %script_file%.bak
    DEL %script_file%
    START /d "CProgram Files\Corel\Corel Painter X" PainterX.exe
    ) ELSE (
    START /d "CProgram Files\Corel\Corel Painter X" PainterX.exe
    )
