I receive a message during install that a file is needed from a CD or other location. The file name is  PaintDotNet_x64_1889275569.msi   I am using Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, and previously had no problem installing prior versions. Any tips are welcome. Thanks.

Your current paint.net installation has become broken. You can use this utility to remove the broken installation:

Afterwards, you can install paint.net anew.

Thanks much for your prompt response. I tried that, but paint.net doesn't show in list. (I had removed older version a few months ago.) So, I did the following which worked (a bit to my surprise):

- I did the reinstall and when it stopped with the message that I needed that file, I copied the contest of the folder and stored in a separate folder

- when I canceled the install, the contents of original folder were removed. I then copied the temporary folder contents back.

- I then copied in the paint.net config file I had earlier set up for portable use 

- and it works fine. I have no idea what that missing file was to do, but I'm all set now.

Thanks again for your suggestion.
