Install won't allow custom folder.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install 4.1.6 into a custom folder on my f: drive. The 4.1.6 installer won't accept that.

 

I've tried a ton of things. But the easiest reproduce-able sequence is to switch "c:" with "f:" on the folder selection screen. With c:, Next is enabled. But as soon as I change it to f:, the Next button is disabled.

 

Current Windows 10

When you click the Browse button, is drive F available?

It is a removable drive.

 

Almost all other apps allow installation on a removable drive. So it's obviously not a Windows restriction.

 

Why not Paint.NET?

Yes, f: is visible as an option when I browse in the installer. But when I select it, the "Next" button is disabled.

It does since 2017. Instructions here: http://blog.getpaint.net/2017/07/21/portable-mode-in-paint-net-4-0-17/:

Because it causes all sorts of really REALLY bad problems.

 

This way there's only 1 small problem; I think this is literally the 2nd or 3rd time in 10 years someone has asked about this.

 

Software reliability/quality is a statistical game sometimes.
