Can't uninstall/reinstall, missing a .msi file (w/ screenshots)


Recommended Posts

Background: I got a blue screen when installing an update to Paint.NET, and since then I haven't been able to get it to open. So I tried uninstalling, which didn't work. I tried reinstalling, by downloading the latest version from the website, but again was unable to get this to work. So I am trapped, unable to use Paint.NET atm.

 

Problem: Both the uninstall & reinstall give me a messaging saying I'm missing "PaintDotNet_x64_332577892.msi" (from the "Staging" folder), so I think this may be what's causing it to not work.

 

Here's screenshots of what happens;

On reinstall (trying to install new version, from the website)

Your previous install became broken some how. Use this utility to remove that previous installation:

Afterwards, install paint.net anew.

 

Many thanks, that's now fixed it. I now don't have to resort to using ordinary Paint anymore haha
