TerpMD Posted June 1, 2022 Share Posted June 1, 2022 Hi all - Hoping this forum can get me through an install issue. I'm trying to install paint.net on my work computer (Windows 10 20H2). I do not have administrative access to the computer, but I can escalate privilege via a Privilege Management app. I also had to transfer the Getpaint.net install file from another computer, as the URL is blocked via our IT policy. When I try to install the file (via right click -> “Run as Privilege Management Administrator” to get escalated privileges), I get a stack trace (see attached error #1). I contacted my internal helpdesk - they are supportive of me getting this software. However, they could not get the file to install either. They also confirmed the app is not available via our Software Center. I then tried purchasing paint.net via the Microsoft Store app within Windows. Unfortunately, it is also blocked (see error #2). I then created a Windows account using my work email address on apps.microsoft.com, and was able to successfully purchase paint.net via the browser interface. However, the download & install won’t initiate because my domain login doesn’t match the account I created for the purchase. (Goodbye $8!) Any other suggestions? Thanks!!
