Paint.net Not Installing

Recommended Posts

So, I just got a temporary laptop and I tried downloading Paint.net due to how absolutely magical it is (Not even joking) and it is refusing to do so. I am downloading from the official site (getpaint.net) and am not clicking on any form of an ad. I'll try to provide a screenshot, but I'll have to use *shudders* regular Paint. I downloaded the .zip and extracted the .exe. I ran it and it tells me that .NET and paint.net will be installed. I confirm that it should do so and it continues. It extracts the files and that's it. No more notification, no shortcut, and no file anywhere I can find even checking in. I am using Windows 8.1 x64 which to my knowledge is usable with paint.net. Is there a flaw with my installation that I will be embarrassed about for overlooking and make me reevaluate my entire life?

In this case, you'll need to manually install the .NET Framework.

You should be able to install paint.net successfully afterwards.

 

If you have any further issues, please see this guide:
