Spoctor Dock Posted November 23, 2009 Share Posted November 23, 2009 I tried to install PDN 3.5.1 and had error 1603. I read through the sticky at the top of the page and none of that helped. I couldn't find anything on the forums that would get rid of the error without system restores, windows reinstalls and all manner of long and unnecessary procedures. I did find a solution though. I've not tested it with upgrades from previous versions as this is the first time I've used PDN, but during the installation options if you change the installation directory from the default C:\Program Files\Paint.NET directory to another directory outside of Program Files (C:\PDN for example) then you have no problems with the installation. (I'm not sure if you can install into the Program Files folder, I'll have to find time to look into that) I'm not an expert programmer, but it would probably be a good idea with the next release to have the extracted files put into the c:\windows\temp folder before being installed into the destination folder as it seems the error for most people is due to the files being copied from the staging subfolder into the parent folder.
