Error when installing 3.5


Recommended Posts

This is the error I got when trying to install 3.5:

System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'G:\Documents\Downloads\Staging'.

at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

at System.IO.Directory.InternalCreateDirectory(String fullPath, String path, DirectorySecurity dirSecurity)

at System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(String path, DirectorySecurity directorySecurity)

at PaintDotNet.Threading.IterativeTask`1.<>c__DisplayClass1.b__0() in D:\src\pdn\paintdotnet\src\Core\Threading\IterativeTask`1.cs:line 77

Does anyone know how to fix it?

I tried updating to 3.51 and I got another error:

System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'G:\Documents\Downloads\Staging'.

Here's some other info:

I did not add PDN to the Start Menu/Programs List.

PDN was installed into my USB, then later moved to this computer.

EDIT: I installed PDN manually from GetPaint.net, and it worked. Thanks.

So, if I understand correctly, you had v.3.36 on USB and

copied the Paint.NET program folder to this system without

going through an installation process on this system?

The error message is wanting - G:\Documents\Downloads\Staging

Do you still have that folder on the USB, and was it plugged in

during the installation attempt?

=========================================

Missed your previous edit, glad you got it working.

v3.36 allowed you to install to a removable drive, e.g. USB stick. This actually ends up being a very bad thing, so it is no longer allowed. The upgrade path for v3.36 -> v3.5* on removable media probably won't work, as you've seen.
