My Paint.net is having a stroke


Recommended Posts

Sounds like you have an existing paint.net installation that has become broken. Please use this utility to remove the broken installation:

Afterwards, you should be able to install paint.net anew.

ok, but wich one shoud/can i delete? like whats it called?

 

When you couldn't find it, did you try the option "Not listed"?

 

Try that tool again and then pick > Not listed and enter the Product Code.

 

The Product Key can be found:  Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\paint.net

 

Click on the paint.net and on the right-hand side, copy the Product Code.

 

It will look like this:  Product-code.png

 

If it finds anything, delete and then try to install again.

Do you have Windows 10 or 11?

Also, what anti virus software do you have?

 

Also, have a look for a crash log, found via:

 

C:\Users\Your name\AppData\Local\paint.net\Crash Logs

The only other thing I can suggest, is to try this to look for corrupted files:

Did you have the Classic version, or did you buy paint.net from the Windows Store?

(the screenshot above indicates the Classic version -- the Store version doesn't have an "installer")
