Paint.net will no longer install


Recommended Posts

Before I start on my problems, I'd like to say I adore Paint.net to the extent I use it in my art work etc and I perfer it over programs such as fire works. Anyway..

I've been using Paint.net for over a year now. But I was using it this morning, and after about a minute of me setting it up a message came up complaining about some handling problem, so I was like Meh, I'll just reinstall it. Being rash and idiotic, I simiply deleted the folder which my Paint.net was contained in because I couldn't see an uninstall button so and I just completely forgot about Add/Remove Programs. But now, when I try to install the latest version of Paint.net, I get this:

See the end of this message for details on invoking

************** JIT Debugging **************

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

application or computer (machine.config) must have the

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

The application must also be compiled with debugging

enabled.

For example:

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Which I can't make heads or tails of since I'm 16, and have no knowledge of such things.

I was looking across the net for a fix, and I came across the main problems sorter on this site. I know getting a new version won't help, since I'm using the latest. I know a Mircosoft clean up thing won't work, since my deleting of the old Paint.net means I can't find anything to pick up. So I can't see a way around it >.>

I'm in need a really help because I go back to Collage in 4 days and I really could do with Paint.net's help with my coursework. Also, I use it for slightly more immature uses since, really, I'm still a small boy playing Pokemon :D This is examples out what I've been using Paint.net for as well: http://ssf2expansion.yforum.biz/art-f36/torndragon-sprite-age-t5664.htm

The exception says, "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

I'd say run chkdsk. Your hard drive may be corrupted.

That appears to have sorted everything, I'm very thankful for both of your help.

Paint.net is a pleasure to work with and I find it very reliable and impressive.

I plan to be using it for a long time. And, again, I'm very grateful.
