I can't seem to get the paint.net repair utility to run using the paint.net protocol. 

 

Search bar + "Run" > paintdotnet:/repair [enter] simply starts the Store version. This is different from running the repair utility manually, where I see the command window open and the results listed.

 

I know my situation is a little unusual in that I have side-by-side installations of Classic and Store. Is that what's confusing the issue?

/repair is not applicable for the Store version, only the Classic version. It is ignored by the Store version.

 

PdnRepair doesn't exist for the Store version, as its job is to do an MSI repair and Store uses APPX instead of MSI.

 

Technically you can just run PaintDotNet.exe with the /repair switch, but that defeats the point of using /repair because you may as well have just run PdnRepair if you can find PaintDotNet.exe.

Also, paintdotnet:/repair doesn't work from the command-line. You have to use start paintdotnet:/repair
