Picture Window Pro 8.0 Installer

This installs the main program including the help file and extras (color lines, curves, frames and tiles, sample images, shapes and textures)

Picture Window Pro 8.0 Installer – Last updated 12-Oct-2019

If you are replacing an earlier beta version, you will need to uninstall the old version before installing the new one. To do this, use Start/Control Panel/Programs and Features/Picture Window Pro 8.

If you get a warning from Windows Defender SmartScreen during the install, click the More Info button and then the Run Anyway button.

Picture Window Pro has been thoroughly screened for viruses and malware.

Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable DLLs – Download and run if you get an error message about missing the file MSVCP140.dll when you launch the installer. You should only need to do this once if at all.

Picture Window Pro – Last updated 12-Oct-2019

During the beta test period, Picture Window Pro is being updated quite frequently. If you have already downloaded the full version as described above and just want to update the core Picture Window program, as a convenience, you can download it separately as a zip file. When you unzip the file (by double-clicking on it in Windows Explorer), you can then drag PWP 8.0.exe to the Picture Window Pro folder (typically C:\Program Files\Digital Light & Color\Picture Window Pro 8). Note that this gets you the latest version of PWP 8.0.exe only and not the latest help file, bitmaps, or any other supporting files and folders. Most of the time, the only thing that changes from one beta release to another is this one file, which is a very much smaller download than the full installer. If you notice missing bitmaps or want to make sure you have the latest help file, download and install the full version. If you just want to catch up on a bug fix or a minor new feature and don't want to download the full version, you can download and install just the executable file. If you want to be safe, download and install the full version.

Adobe DNG Codec 2.0 -- Download and install this codec if you want to be able to open DNG files with Picture Window.
