paint.net not installing

Recommended Posts

i have windows 7

i did a full restart on my computer, cleared everything and proceeded to re-download all my programs

got the install exe from the official website 




after extracting files, there was nothing, no other screen and paint.net was not installed. 

ive tried it multiple times and restarting my computer in between

Hi deaderidan - welcome to the forum :D

I suspect it is failing on the installation of .NET 4.6.1. Our usual response is to get the user to try and install .NET prior to the paint.net installation.

First check that you have SP1 installed for Windows 7: Click the Start button, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. It should say if Service Pack 1 is installed under Windows Edition.


To manually install .net 4.6.1, go here and hit the download button: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49981
