"Fatal Error During Installation"

Recommended Posts

I've used Paint.net a lot. After I finished working on something I shut off my computer, like normal. The next day I try to open it, but I can't. I uninstalled the program, and tried re-installing. It get this message: 






When it downloads it has a 'staging' folder with the installer inside.


I recently upgraded to Windows 10, maybe thats the problem?


Help if you can, and get back as soon as you can.
