previous versions of paint.net were more or less portable
meaning you could take a copy of the install folder on a usb stick and start it up on any other pc with the necessary frameworks installed
the latest versions have a dependency which I cannot resolve
starting up paint.net on any pc triggers an error that VC 2008 SP1 redistributable is needed
paint.net will try to repair this, a cmd window pops up and then nothing happened
the error comes back the next time and the time after that,....
I know quite sure the VC 2008 SP1 runtime is installed because it is a runtime that is part of the standard workstation setup here
what else could be the reason paint.net would throw this error?
