Need to skip the .net 4.8 install step... how?

Recommended Posts

How do I install Paint.net while skipping the .net framework install? The .net framework install keeps crashing on me. I already have .net 4.8 installed (which is the version the paint.net installer tries to install), but the bundled .net installer keeps crashing for me on the file download step. (I had this same problem with the .net 4.8 net installer, but was able to install .net 4.8 just fine with the offline installer.)

 

Thanks!

When you say it "crashes", what error message do you get?

 

Show us the failure.

 

Or, if that's too much trouble... repair your .NET framework, reboot, try the install again.

Paint.NET will only install .NET if it detects that .NET isn't installed. So I very much doubt that you successfully installed .NET 4.8.

Multiple reinstall attempts and days of trying things later, and it still tries to do the .net framework 4.8 setup. I've checked with other programs that use the framework and they work just fine. And by it crashing, I mean it gets stuck on the .net install.

 

It says, "
