Don Connolly Posted January 8, 2022 Share Posted January 8, 2022 I am running PDN 4.2.15, and have been for some while, as every attempt to update since early 2021 has failed with the same error.... "There was an error while installing paint.net. (2) The system cannot find the file specified." I have tried to update and validate .net v6, I've tried Windows Store installs, the update within 4.2.15, and a DL from here, all are the same (I do understand that they all share a common install process). I get the installer extracted into the Appdata/Local/Temp folder, and the msi file in the staging folder in the app's directory. I'm can't begin to imagine what file it is looking for that it can't find. Two seemingly contradictory lines extracted from the pdnmsinstall.log file are.... MSI (s) (40:78) [11:34:26:274]: Running installation inside multi-package transaction e:\commonapps\paint.net\Staging\PaintDotNet_x64_1466336941.msi MSI (s) (40:40) [11:34:26:601]: Error: Failed to access database: e:\commonapps\paint.net\Staging\PaintDotNet_x64_1466336941.msi The whole log file is 44K so I won't post it all here unless asked to. Any one got any suggestions or cures for these ills? Thanks Don Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
