Update to 4.2.12 failing


Recommended Posts

For about 10-14 days I have not been able to update paint.net. I'm currently using Version 4.2.8. Clicking on "Settings>>Updates>>Check Now>>Install" starts the download but then I get the following two line error message:

There was an error while checking for updates

There was an error decompressing the download

 

I searched the forum but I didn't find any posts related to this. Makes me wonder if it is only my computer.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium.

 

Thanks - David

You should be able to get this fixed by running PdnRepair.exe from the application directory. Let us know if it still gives you trouble.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

Yeah it's actually an installation bug that I fixed in 4.2.10 (IIRC). (it's not the update's fault, i.o.w.). Only happens on Win7, as far as I was able to tell.

Also, since you're on 4.2.8+, you can run PdnRepair in an even easier manner:

 

1. Right click on the Start button and click on Run (or just press WinKey + R)

2. Type or copy+paste this in and then press enter: paintdotnet:/repair
