Error 1603 During Install on Windows 7 x64

Recommended Posts

Is there a 64-bit only installer I may download and run? Or is there a fix for this?


OS is Windows 7, 64-bit with SP1.  I have .NET 4.7.2 installed and the latest Windows updates.


Paint.NET did an update, removed the old version, but failed to install the new. When I download and run the latest installer from the getpaint.net website, it displays this error: "There was an error while installing paint.net. (1603). Fatal error during installation."


Windows event viewer displays this message: "Event 10005, MsiInstaller. Product: paint.net -- 32-bit MSI may not be installed on 64-bit OS."  Not sure why the paint.net installer is trying to install a 32-bit application on my 64-bit OS.


Any suggestion will be much appreciated!

One workaround for this issue is to install paint.net using /createMsi. If you want to try it, see......
