souwesterly Posted October 13, 2008 Share Posted October 13, 2008 I’ve just had to have my 6 month old computer formatted (Windows XP Home) due to a deeply embedded virus :evil: that snuck past my defences, so I’m now going through the process of reinstalling umpteen useful programs – including this one, of course. However when I tried to do so (from http://www.download) the message came up that……. “Paint.NET requires that the .NET framework is installed. Go to Microsoft’s webpage where you can download and install this.” Fair enough – so I followed the link. I found the right program, clicked on the button and after waiting while the program tried to download, another error message came up……”This computer does not meet the requirements to install this software. Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1” :?: Please could someone tell me why my computer has become ‘out of date’ or whatever? :?: Is it safe to load Installer 3.1 on my existing system? :?: Why do I need all these installations when the last time I installed Paint.NET, it downloaded simply and easily without me being told to install any other programs? PS – In the interim, because I urgently needed a photo editing tool, I downloaded and installed PhotoFiltre….it took a minute or two and needed no extras.
