Install Failure - No Errors?


Recommended Posts

I had the latest version of Paint.Net installed and worked fine last week. However, I tried to launch it this morning and it kept crashing. I tried to do a repair from the "Add Remove Programs" applet but it did not resolve the problem. So I decided to uninstall it and then reinstall it. After uninstalling it I ran the installer, it goes through 2 extraction screens, then about five seconds later I hear the error "doink" noise that Windows makes when its not happy. I reinstalled .Net 3.5 SP1 rebooted and tried again, same thing. I tried removing all Paint.Net registry entries from CURRENT_USER and LOCAL_MACHINE, tried again, same thing. I verified that there was no Paint.Net directory in "Program Files". I did a disk cleanup to remove all temporary files and tried again, same thing. I ran the "Windows Installer Clean Up" as suggested in another forum but there were not entries for Paint.Net so that was not an issue. As a last resort I tried installing an older version (2.62) that I had sitting on my computer. Still the same thing. I'm not getting any type of error, just that annoying "doink" sound. Anyone help would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need any more info from me. Also, I'm running XP Pro SP3.

@AndrewD: I don't think he's hiding it. I think his file is just corrupted somehow.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Could you load the PDNCrash.log file up into a .ZIP file and attach it here, please?

Hello bglinkerman

That one nasty looking problem and I am hoping it will not be as hard to fix as others had for other programs.

The error that stands out to me in it is: "System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Window class name is not valid."

So here what I need you to do.

If you downloaded any plugins / filetypes for Paint.NET, move them to another folder to make sure there not causing this runtime error.

If the error still happens then try repairing .NET Framework, you may even want to update from 2.0 to 3.5

Still no go after that then you will need to start looking at other programs as they could be causing this error to happen to Paint.NET. I have see one about logitech quickcam.

From what I been reading this problem is a runtime error that happens in programs that use winforms.

More Info Here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums ... 2b/#page:1

Good luck

HITMAN,

Hitman-X,

Currently I have not plugins installed and I updated my .net to v3.5 SP1 two days ago thinking that may be the problem. However, your third option I think may be a winner due to the fact that I installed a Logitech QucikCam just last week. That never even crossed my mind but at this point seems like the most logical reason. I'll experiment with that when I go home today.

Thanks
