cannot install Paint.Net 2.72


Recommended Posts

OS Windows XP home edition + SP2

.NET framework 2.0

.NET framework 2.0 security update KB922770

.NET framework 2.0 security update KB917283

download file PaintdotNet_2_72.exe

During install this error message:

system.unauthorizedaccessexception Hkey_local_Machine\Software\Paint.Net rejected at

Microsoft.Win32.Registrykey.win32error(Int32 errorCode,String str)

Microsoft.win32.Registrykey.createsubkey(string subkey,RegistrykeyPermissionCheck permission check,Registrysecurity)

Microsoft.Win32.Registrykey.createsubkey(String, subkey)



Then came another message

There is a problem with this windows Installer package.

A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected.

Contact your support personel or package vendor.

I didnot use the default folder C:\program Files\Paint.Net

but D:\program files\paintdotnet

But maybe the HKLM (or another parent) cannot be written and so the key cannot be created.

Just my 2 cents, though, i'm not the dev.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

yes I have seen that item and I do not see how it compares to my situation.

Here is what I think has happend; The installer created the keys I reported and then later in the process it checked and came with the error messages. Than it removed all the created files as I could see it on my screen, leaving me with no executable.

So is it a matter of permission that had to be given for a new application in .Net framework v 2.0?

I am out of ideas.

The installer is PaintdotNet_247009377.msi

I am looking into some log-files with date and time of install effort but since I am a layman this could be useless


"rsop.mof not found error 0x80041001"

Remember that I specified to install at

c:\program files\Paintdotnet

What more files can I search?
