Ray Posted June 21, 2010 Share Posted June 21, 2010 Was using 3.5.5 successfully on a Windows XP SP3 PC No issues on install or use. Got new Windows 7 PC, no atypical settings or other installation, MS Office 2007, Adobe Acrobat and the typical print drivers etc, Trend Mico AV. Turned off Trend Micro prior to install. Install hangs repeatedly at about 80% of progress bar and leaves behind only an msi file in the stage subfolder of the paint.net folder of the programs directory file size 20,185 KB. No vestigages of it in Start Menu nor via list in Windows Install Cleanup. Only way to stop the hung install is to either wait about 30 minutes or so each time or a control-alt-del---either way it leaves behind a new msi file of exact same size each time. Have deleted all there and retried numerous times. Have messed with various "solutions" found in other parts of the forum to the tune of about 4 hours now. Unable to use Windows restore point either immediately before the install attempts are all the way back a week ago for whatever reason, simply says its unable to do so. Was able to install another photo reader freeware program successfully after the fact, suggesting that Windows Installer is not corrupt? Forgive me if I have overlooked the obvious in the forum. Any new suggestions? Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
