Paint.net missing an installation file, not sure how to get it


Recommended Posts

When it gets to "removing older version"...

This happens.
Clicking "OK" does this:

It refuses to install and I'm not sure why this is happening.

Things I did before:
- Copied paint.net to my D drive
- Unknown amt of time later, I delete from my D drive and uninstall with GeekUninstaller
- Refuses to uninstall so force removal

I'm assuming Force Removal of the program broke something.

I'm not sure what else to do, and I'm assuming my only option is to find a download of the specific file.

Please use this utility to remove your previous Paint.NET installation:

Afterwards, you can install Paint.NET anew.

Thanks! This worked.
I might post more here, but for the most part I do music and not really much art, and I don't do art with this program much.
