Greysi Posted October 4, 2008 Share Posted October 4, 2008 Hi Forum I also hat the problems to install or run PDN 3.36 on all of my x86 vista machines. All suggestions didn't help for me. I think, I have found the source of the problem and a solution: All our machines have the German version of Windows Vista SP1 32 Bit (I didn't try with 64 bit until now). For Installation I create the msi-Files first and install them, but the install always hangs during SetupNGen.exe. Killing the installer process makes a lot of problems if you later have to install other applications who use VC90 runtime libraries. You always will get an errror 1935 (MSI exit code 1603), because of a VC90-file in %SystemRoot%\winSXS. SOLUTION: All seems to work fine, if you install PDN with MSI and add the Property TARGETDIR="%ProgramFiles%\Paint.NET" msiexec /i "PaintDotNet.x86.msi" TARGETDIR="%ProgramFiles%\Paint.NET" /l*v "%Temp%\PaintDotNet336.log" REASON: If you do not add this property, the installer of PDN finds C:\Programme\Paint.NET (on a german Vista) as TARGETDIR. Since Vista, this is not a good directory and exist only for compatibility reasons. On XP this Directory is ok. Hope these informations help you to use this really fantastic tool on non english vista machines. Greysi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
