portable paint.net

Recommended Posts

previous versions of paint.net were more or less portable

meaning you could take a copy of the install folder on a usb stick and start it up on any other pc with the necessary frameworks installed

the latest versions have a dependency which I cannot resolve

starting up paint.net on any pc triggers an error that VC 2008 SP1 redistributable is needed

paint.net will try to repair this, a cmd window pops up and then nothing happened

the error comes back the next time and the time after that,....

I know quite sure the VC 2008 SP1 runtime is installed because it is a runtime that is part of the standard workstation setup here

what else could be the reason paint.net would throw this error?

in attachment a sysinternals procmon logfile for paintdotnet.exe

as almost every .NET application I know and use is portable if you have the right framework installed I would expect the same for paint.net

and this was true for previous versions

hope the logfile can help you guys pinpoint the issue

Did you even read the thread Sarkut showed you? Paint.NET is not a portable app. There is no "issue" to pinpoint. Just install it properly.
