Free version won't install

Recommended Posts

I am running Windows 10 Home x64 (10.0.19555.0)


I had the free version and it wouldn't update as it would fail missing an MSI. The free version did not uninstall well (left an entry in Add/Remove) andcomplains about missing \Staging\PaintDotNet_x64_27095077.msi


I've installed the store version (4.2.9) just fine, but I'd like to install the free version, any ideas? Thank you! I love this tool.

Glad to hear you've got it sorted. I run both versions side-by-side too 👍
