I have had the 1603 problem periodically, The last update went smoothly, but this latest to 4.2.14 just quietly fails with no message, just error code 1603. I read many prior posts here on the subject, so it's a common problem, and I tried the Microsoft tool that is frequently mentioned to no avail.

Thanks much for your prompt response. I tried that, but paint.net doesn't show in list. (I had removed older version a few months ago.)

I then copied the temporary folder contents back. - I then copied in the paint.net config file I had earlier set up for portable use - and it works fine.
I receive a message during install that a file is needed from a CD or other location. The file name is PaintDotNet_x64_1889275569.msi I am using Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, and previously had no problem installing prior versions. Any tips are welcome. Thanks.
