Infinite preparing to install

Recommended Posts

When I try to update my Paint.NET, The "Preparing to Install" is stuck there and it won't progress.

I also have the latest framework installed, and I can't uninstall my current version of Paint.net to get the newest version.

Hey, I've been trying to help my friend here fix this issue. I've persuaded him to create a forum account so he's able to give his own responses, but I felt like clarifying this, in case you're wondering why someone other than the OP is claiming to know details about his own issue. We'll appreciate all responses, and I'll be clarifying any details when I am able to.
Oh, another thing we've tried is using the repair exe with Paint.NET and restarting the PC as the tool requires, but that did not help at all, it just didn't seem to bring us any closer to a solution, and generally seemed to actually do nothing at all.

This is not the same error, but regardless I've beamed this alone to the call we're in since I saw this response before he did.
Edit: This solution did not work, but thank you for the response!

This could be related to System Restore. Maybe it's got a bug stuck up in its whatever. You might try disabling System Restore, then install Paint.NET, and then re-enable System Restore.

Where is System Restore?
