Can't install the program due to an error message


Recommended Posts

When I try to install paint.net I get an error. "There was an unhandled exception." System Component Model Win32 Exception (0x80004005) install failed for Universal C Runtime (KB2999226). WU_E_NOT APPLICABLE.


Any ideas? I'm using Windows 8.1. I don't have the Windows April 2014 Update installed which I know you have to have installed to correctly install some software.

Even better, install Windows 10/11


The next version of Paint.NET (5.0) will not work on Windows 8.1 at all, so you're already running on borrowed time
