Installations Stops


Recommended Posts

I recently had some issues with my PC, resulting in a full wipe and reinstall of operating system. However, Paint.Net can't install.
Operating System:
Windows 10 Home 64bit Version 1903 Build 18362.535.
.Net Framework 4.8 Update 528040 Released 10 November 2019.
Windows Update found no new updates.
Paint.Net 4.2.8 Installer.
Upon running the installer, I get the "Installing Setup" window:

As soon as this is done and closes, the Setup window (at least, that's what I assume it is) attempts to open for only a few milliseconds, then closes itself. No error popup or anything. Just a silent close.

Hello @BobGrey and Welcome to the forum :)


Until a 'tech' logs on I would suggest looking through these points in the hope they may help:

Problems during Download


2. Unzip the file to your desktop.  Don't use Alzip as it is old and broken. Use WinZip, 7-zip, WinRAR, or even the functionality that's built-in to Windows itself (Right-click, Extract to...).


Are you extracting the archive? Some systems do not like Setup being run from inside the zip.
