Cannot Install (error screenshot inside)


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been using Paint.net for awhile and when prompted attempted to perform an update, but I get the following error:

I've tried numerous things to resolve this, including uninstalling and clearing out the temp folder but I've had no luck. For now I'm using version 3.5 until I get this resolved.

 

Here are my system specs:

      Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 10586) (10586.th2_release.160126-1819)
      Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
      Processor: AMD FX-8320 Eight-Core Processor            (8 CPUs), ~3.5GHz
      Memory: 8192MB RAM
      Available OS Memory: 8090MB RAM
      Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
      Manufacturer: NVIDIA
      Chip type: GeForce GTX 460

This is solved by first installing this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

 

It's not supposed to be something you have to do, and most people don't, but Microsoft broke something here and we're all paying the price ...

Indeed, it's been a long time since I've seen a windows upgrade break an installer (and I'm talking 16 bit to 64 bit jump here)
