Problem installing paint.net 4.0.9 (SetupFrontEnd.exe)


Recommended Posts

I recently had to do a restore on my computer and it ended up deleting all my programs. When I tried to redownload paint.net, I keep encountering the window as shown in the picture.

 

"SetupFrontEnd.exe - This application could not be started.

This application requires one of the following versions of the .NET Framework:

.NETFramework,Version=v4.6

Do you want to install this .NET Framework version now?"

 

Before I come to this screen, I get a screen that says something along the lines of "paint.NET and framework installed", but then when I click okay, the attached picture comes up. When I click yes, I want to install this .NET Framework version, the installation repeats, and this screen comes up again in an infinite cycle until I select no. 

 

From what I can tell, my computer already does have the .NET framework installed, does anyone know what would be causing this problem? I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit. When I first installed paint.NET on this computer (towards the end of last year) I had no issues.

Please verify that the .NET Framework v4.6.1 is in fact installed on your system.

.NET framework 4.6.1 is installed in the system.

 

You might try a reboot to see if it fixes that problem.

I've tried restarting, redownloading and every other combination I could think of certainly at least 5 times by now.

 

Thanks though! Anyone have any other tips?
