Port of this to .NET 4 and support for windows 7/8


Also it would be cool if plugin projects would be totally separated from the core project.

I could definitely get behind both your requests. Some time ago I wanted to make an entire rewrite of the app, but seeing as this project has been abandoned for so long, I lost hope in it ever seeing the light of day.

It does not work at all on Windows 8 or Windows 2012. It is a very cool app. Is there a workaround?

The legacy of this application is that it is user-friendly, powerful, flexible, has a simple and novel and well-designed UI, and is well written (IMO). To me, the project has not been abandoned. It's just not screaming for a major re-write. I do have a coded and mostly tested fix for the issue whereby the cropped image cannot be as large as the screen size because of the 'transparent' frame surrounding the visible form shown. I'm hoping the last person to build and release the project will step up and integrate it. Who would that be? Perhaps Brian Scott himself would be interested. The changes are in MainCropForm.cs.

As for Windows 8, have you tried to run the exe as Administrator?

Check out the first patch on the list. It fixes the cropper form not being able to reach full screen size issue. Check the date on that: 2+ years ago. And that's not the only patch waiting in queue. That's what I call abandoned.
