Deleted the paint.net folder


Recommended Posts

(Sorry for my bad grammar and english)

So I tried unistalling paint.net by deleting the folder, instead of using the control panel. The reason is because im an idiot, i thought it will just comeback whenever i want to install it back.

This is some information of the problem: Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Uninstall paint.net doesn't work. It comes up with this: https://imgur.com/cGWTXQn .

Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Repair Paint.NET doesnt work either. It comes up with this: https://imgur.com/Kczc4uR https://imgur.com/2NpJu7v https://imgur.com/5EIFNn5 . I also can't install it back, i can't uninstall and install paint.net. I only found one old post from 2011 that has the same problem as me, but it is pretty old so idk, this is the post: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/21378-accidentally-deleted-installation-folder/?tab=comments#comment-370712 .

Some info:

OS -> Windows 10

paint.net verion -> 4.2.14

 

Please reply devs.

First, check your Recycle Bin for the paint.net installation folder.

If it is not there you will need to use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to remove the broken paint.net installation.

The following post has the download link and instructions on how to use it.

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

Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to learn from yours and find the correct way of deleting a program :)

When i downloaded and run it this error pops up: https://imgur.com/wL85IWC . Do i need to run it as administrator?

It's a useful tool. You might want to keep it around.
