Unable to install paint.net


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been using PDN for years now and a few months ago, I had an OS crash, so to save me time and effort backing up everything and reinstalling the OS, I just installed the OS again, nice and new and drag'n'dropped my USER folder straight over to my new OS, granted it caused a few issues but hey, most, if not all of them are gone now (albeit I'm having issues with PDN).

Below is an image of what occurs each time I attempt to reinstall.


Here's a copy/paste of exactly what it says:

System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.FileSystem' threw an exception. ---> System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Users\Josh\AppData\Local\Paint.NET\105045708' is denied.

I am running a Windows 7 x64 Laptop attempting to install PDN v3.5.8 if that info helps at all.

I have googled and searched the forums however I haven't been able to find a fix for this, would be eternally grateful if someone could please shed some light onto this error and how I may be able to fix it, I'm happy to give you as much info as I possibly can, thank you.

Have you got the .NET framework form Microsoft? I had to find and download that for it to work on my windows 7 laptop.

EDIT: Found link.

.NET Framework

Let me know whether that worked :)

Hey thanks for the response, I tried installing the .NET Framework about a month or so back, which helped a few other problems but didn't help PDN, which I was sure it would help, thanks though it's much appreciated but the problem persists still. I'll reinstall it now and give it a go, will tell you how it went.

EDIT: No, the problem still occurs, thanks though :(
