imamgholi Posted November 11, 2009 Share Posted November 11, 2009 Ok, been a silent and happy freerider so far and now finally had to register, so, hi yall! I just tried to update mine to 3.5 initially using the update popup offered by paint.net, and the installation/update halted at about half an inch to the end of the progress bar, i would assume in 90-100% zone of the progress. it just stops and never moves again without the process every becoming "not responding" so i went ahead and pulled the plug on it, got some error that i did not read carefully about something in c++ missing and the installation trying to repair it and rerun itself again. but nothing happened after i said ok. then i tried running it again, this time hitting other errors that an earlier installation needs to be finished and i just have no idea how to finish it, tried running the temp folder paint.net update file and that didnt work either. I checked everywhere i could on the forum, reinstalled .net fmwrk 3.5 clean+got updates, tried the MS installer cleanup, and tried to manually clean anything left of paint.net in the registry and elsewhere on my pc... all to no avail long story short, i did a system restore-recovery to pre-update times. uninstalled both paint.net and .net fmwrk, reinstalled .net fmwrk+reboot+update+reboot, then got paint.net 3.5 full installation, and now once again my new installation has stayed dead in its track at the very same spot it did earlier today. please advise me on what could possibly be the problem and how i can fix it. refer to the scrnsht to see it for yourself (this is my 2nd try), as i type this, the progress has been stopped there for the past 45 mins. hard disk activity has been constant (i got all indexing off, no malware, and on my earlier try i had no other programs running- i know u might say something about my taskbar activities regarding hdd blinks) so as u see, there is a serious issue here, repeating itself-which i'm guessing could be either of the following: - somehow a still corrupt .net fmwrk on my system - a corrupt installer/file download (even with a 2nd download? from pdn site?) - a bug - some other 3rd factor resulting in this behavior by the installer ps. ms installation wizard is working just fine with all other setups. thnx in advance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
