Usually this message only comes up when you are behind on Windows Updates. 
 

Apply all Windows Updates and try again. 

im on windows 7 ultimate, is that compatible? if not, do you have a version that could be compatible with it?

Do you have the Platform Update installed?

also, which platform update?

 

There was only one "Platform Update" for Windows 7.

It will be installed when you run Windows Update.  SP1 will be installed before the Platform Update though.

i used to use it on this same laptop tho,

 

Then you were using a very old version of Paint.NET, or you reinstalled Windows 7 without apply any of its updates.

No.

 

You need to run your Windows Updates.  And, keep doing that over and over again until it tells you that you are up-to-date.  THEN try to install Paint.NET.

 

This is the only support you will receive on this message board.
