You'll need to install the .NET Framework separately. You can download it here.



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

To install the .net framework and paint.net, you'll need admin rights.

Install .net framework first and wait for it to finish, then run paint.net installer.

You can check to see if the .net framework is installed under Add or Remove a Program in the Control Panel (which you can get to by typing into the start menu).

If you finish both and don't see paint.net, look in C:/Program Files and C:/Program Files (x86) for a folder called paint.net.

If it's still not there, describe how far you got in the installation and paste any error messages you encountered (exact wording).
