(Solved) Can't install Store version

Recommended Posts

Hi. I've bought Paint.net from Microsoft Store but never able to download it, such that I have a paid version on my PC.  Microsoft's page says "You Own it" and there is a button to install. I think I could not download it at the time because my PC was not known to Microsoft Store. But as of today the store does see my laptop, but still cannot download/install.  Is there actually a paid version of Paint.net insumuch that it's different from the download you can get from Paint.net? I thought there was some advantage to buying Paint.net, but forgot what they were.

You never have to manually update it. It updates automatically.

I've just managed to install the paid for version. I had to make sure my PC is recognised as a device by Microsoft Store, then I had to install thru the Microsoft Store App, which I can access from the taskbar on my PC. So, issue of MS store-bought install is solved.
