Hi Ken - Welcome to the forum :D


Ok.  Let's take this step-by-step and find out if SP1 is correctly installed


Start Menu > Computer (right hand sidebar) + Right click > Properties (alternatively Control Panel > System and Security > System)
Under the heading "Windows Edition" does it say SP1 is installed?

I have the same problem, though SP1 is listed in 'upgrades' (?) but not listed as shown in the pic above. (toshiba 505 w/W-7)

I now have 3.5(?) installed, it works just fine. How much benefit is there to the newest version(s)?

Tons of new features, and more coming soon.


Plus, we can't provide any support on the forum for older versions of the program.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.

From what I know, Paint.net 4.0 requires Windows 7 SP1 or newer, but not the older versions. I would recommend downloading an older version like 3.5.6 like I did until I can figure out the issue. I am indeed running on Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (Or at least that's what it said on the box when I bought it) and came across this issue myself when I was trying to make a Minecraft resource pack. You may have to get it from an alternate site though, because for me I couldn't get 3.5.6 from getpaint.net, so yeah.


Also, if I just broke a forum rule by mentioning alternate sites, I apologize and plz have mercy on me admins.
