Well, I know you don't have to pay for it.

The Alpha versions expire because they are coming out with new Alpha builds about every week or so, and they want to make sure people test with the newest versions.

However, I can't help you with why the installer is not functioning properly. That's outside my area of knowledge.

So when you go to Add/Remove programs, and click on Paint.NET, and then Change/Remove, that is when you get this crash? I ask because that looks like a different type of crash.

And Dan is right, it's still free. It's not a 30-day trial, it's a 30-day "timebomb." We don't want people using old alphas and betas well after the final version is available :)

Check out my last post in that forum where I describe downloading a CleanUp utility. Hopefully that'll work for you.

Ok then you must have something very corrupted or confused on your system, and Paint.NET is probably the least of your troubles :shock: Do installers for other programs work at all?

When you install the CleanUp utility it should show up at Start -> Programs -> Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. I seem to remember it having a rather terse install and I had to hunt down where it made its shortcut icon.

Any advice at all?

I have a piece of advice for you, if you are running an XP system and know someone you can trust, have you considered using "Remote Assistance"?

It sure would be easier on you, having someone try to look at what is going on with your system and might be able to help you out more in-depth.
