It's great to see people still working on HW2 modding tools after all these years. The UI is a bit buggy on my Win7 but everything seems to be working fine, including the handy paint.net plugin (a plugin for PS/Psp would be ideal though).
Thank you very much, your program will be very usefull.

When I did this program, I did not use VisualStyles, on it did not see this bug.
If it is the big problem, I can send update .EXE file to you by e-mail.
