sitele Posted September 10, 2016 Share Posted September 10, 2016 (edited) Your unexpectedly quick-working forums software just erased my longer message, which had taken me 15 minutes to formulate. Great. This is what actually happened... Paint.net did not install. Installation aborted without prompt, without error message. Inside task manager the .exes where just gone: .net install replaced paint install, then .net (framework) install disappeared. No warning, no message. Took me 20 long minutes to look into the paint.net install .exe's file system (unpacked it with 7zip) and found the .net web installer. Ran it. says the following: Quote Blocking Issues:Setup cannot continue because a previous installation requires your computer to be restarted. Please restart your computer and rerun Setup.The <A HREF="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=403643&clcid=[[clcid]]">update corresponding to KB2919355</A> needs to be installed before you can install this product on Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2. The thing is not my PC or its OS, nah... The thing is, (APART FROM YOUR FORUM EATING UP, no -- throwing into black holes long-developed postings) that the paint.net install neither monitors the .net install nor lifts its invisibility parameter ever. So, if a mistakes makes .net framework install stop, the user will never see it. That is not good, guys. Two ideas for you: 1st monitor the .net install, grab the error message out of its windows or simply visualize the error window. Good, that's hacky and hard to maintain on a longer scale, so: 2nd (and better) SET UP A REGISTRY KEY THAT NOTES WHETER .NET FRAMEWORK INSTALLED CORRECTLY - IF IT DIDN'T LAST TIME, START .NET FRAMEWORK INSTALL IN VISIBLE MODE, NOT SILENT. Come on guys, fix this terrible backdoor for frustration and slight feeling of ignorance-caused brain horror. Fixing this .NET thing on the OS is no problem to someone who can efficiently use paint.net ... but I had to decompress an .exe file !!! Absolute no-go in my opinion. Thanks, bye Edited September 10, 2016 by sitele Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
