Minimum version to start Paint.Net 5


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have just updated Paint.Net version 4 to version 5. No problems during the upgrade, installation. But, I can't launch Paint.Net. It asks me to update my Windows version. I am under Windows 10 22H2 in French.

 

How do I get past this warning message, this verification ?

 

Thank you in advance and have a nice day.

Hi,

Hello @FernandG and welcome to the forum :)

Thanks ;)

 

I just updated my Windows 10 22H2 from the October 2022 cumulative update build 19045.2130 to the January 2023 cumulative update build 19045.2486 and all other pending updates. 

 

Paint.NET 5 still doesn't launch and I still get the message that asks for a Windows 10 1809 / Windows 11 version or higher, which is the case (Windows 10 22H2) ?!

 

Any other idea ?

 

Thanks. Good day.

Regards.

It's as though your computer is not responding to the update.  Weird.  See what happens when you try to install from the offline installer:

Is there any other software you're running that's involved in launching programs that might be causing an issue? Anything that modifies File Explorer or the Start menu? There's usually something that's the culprit. How are you launching the EXE? I remember awhile ago there were some issues with opening the ZIP using WinZip and double-clicking the EXE from there, for instance.

I wonder if it is an over zealous virus scanner software that's preventing access to Paint.NET...

That's also a good thing to look into
