Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if there's already a forum about this, but I need help. I had Paint.NET previously but since then, uninstalled it. I just recently reinstalled it, but every time I try to open the program, this window pops up saying that some type of system configuration has failed. What do I do???

Hello @ana an Welcome.

 

It may be a good idea to use this tool:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/mats/program_install_and_uninstall

 

And then download PDN again from here:

Hopefully someone more tech-minded than myself will log on and help you soon.  However, until then, can you please tell us what OS system you are using?  i.e Windows 10, or 7 or whatever.

Windows 8. :)

Whilst we wait for a tech :mrgreen: there is one more thing I can suggest.  Go to OS(C) :arrow-right: Program Files :arrow-right: Paint.net - and in that folder look for the paint.netRepair.exe and click on that.

I will try it out.

I'm pretty close to removing support for Windows 8 (not 8.1!). Microsoft doesn't even support it. And why should they? You really should have 8.1 installed by now. Just like if you're a Windows 7 user you should have SP1 installed.

 

Case in point: the latest version of .NET Framework that you can install on 8 is .NET 4.6.1. You can't install 4.6.2, nor 4.7. You can install both of those on Windows 7 SP1 though. And since Paint.NET will be moving to .NET 4.7 in the not-too-distant future, Windows 8 (not 8.1!) support is also going away.

Be aware that paint.net has trouble with Windows 8.

 

Even Windows 8 has trouble with Windows 8. What a terrible OS release. I mean ... just really embarrassing stuff.
