PDN wont open/install/delete

Recommended Posts

There's no way we can begin to help you until you explain what happens when you try to open Paint.NET, or when you try to install/delete it.

We also need an error message a bit more specific than "Paint.NET doesn't work, close down the program". Until we have this, we can't really help you.

Have you had Paint.NET installed previously on this system?

If you are having difficulty updating or uninstalling,

be sure to read this thread.

Please post what OS version you have, ( XP, Vista, etc. )

and what OS Service Pack level is installed.

Also, are you fully current on Windows Updates?

You may need to use the Cleanup utility mentioned in the

previous link. Or maybe not.

Because the NET Framework up to 3.5 SP1 is included in the

Windows 7 OS, I believe that using sfc /scannow is the

correct way to repair the NET Framework.

When you next do the Paint.NET installation,

download the installation pack from here:


Disconnect from the internet before beginning to install.
