Configuration Failed to Initialize


Recommended Posts

A few days earlier, I deleted some files on my laptop so I could do a recovery on my pc because of it being entirely slow. Because of this, I didn't think deleting files would be a terrible thing since I was going to reset my pc anyways. I've had the same laptop for over four years and it wasn't a great laptop to begin with (it only being temporary,)  Because of this, Windows didn't allow me to reset the pc so I deleted those files out of mistake. As I try to redownload all of my applications, paint.net seems to be an issue. It will show up a "configuration failed" message that is shown while installing. I've tried to search up many alternatives but none seem to work. I believe I must've deleted a file that was needed to install. It would take me through the installation process but then while I start it up, the "null" message will show up. Is there anyways I can fix this? I already tried downloading .net frameworks in all versions and it hasn't assisted.

Hello Sabrina. Welcome to the forum :)

 

You may have the remnants of the previous installation blocking the reinstall. Use this utility to remove it:

Once you've done that, try to reinstall Paint.NET.

So, you've done what @Ego Eram Reputo suggested above?

 

It may be worth trying to install this and then try to reinstall Paint.net:

This may be a good time to look into using tools like chkdsk and sfc /scannow . You can find more info with a quick Google search (they're very common tools for this kind of stuff).
