Meanwhile I have read this otherwise. 

Since the Microsoft store says I already own paint.net, I conclude that I need to uninstall paint.net if I want to buy it from Microsoft store instead. Is it right?

I want to change from Classic to Store (because I forget all the time how many donations I have made.)
I encounter the following problems:
1) Microsoft Store refuses to deliver the paid version because I already have the Classic version.
2) I uninstall the Classic version, but I still can't download the pay version for the same reason.
3) Now I am completely without paint.net and do a systemrestore. However, Paint.net does not start after that and I receive an error message.
4) After much googling, I find a place that describes how to repair apps in Win10. Now paint.net actually works again. As Classic.
But how do you change from Classic to Store in real?

I found these two and uninstalled both. When I downloaded the pay version of paint.net, the Microsoft Store still informed me that I already owned it.

But I was able to download and install. I think 🤔. My installer type is at least now called AppX.

One question: where can I find the exe file for paint.net which I can make a shortcut from?

btw I'm planning on making this easier.


For instance, if you have both installed then when you launch one you'll see a message, "Hey you have both installed ... you want to uninstall the 'classic' version right?" and a button that just does it for you.

That's great. However, there was a problem already in the Microsoft Store that did not let me install the buy version. Have tried to illustrate this in the attached image. Not even when I uninstalled Classic in the usual way. With toe_head2001's help, however, I now have a working app.
