Shouldn't be anywhere else.

A quick search of the forum revealed this thread:

Resident Expert Pyrochild first recommended repairing the .NET frameworks. If that doesn't work try the hint in post #4.

Finally, read right through the thread, then return to post #22 and try the steps listed there.

Note: Do try these in the order specified - they go from easy to hard :) Please let us know what worked/didn't work.

Moved your post from the other thread to keep this all in one place :)

The log you posted didn't indicate anything to me (I'm not an expert).

Q: Did you first try repairing the .NET framework?

perhaps someday, someone that works on this thing will give some insight. :unimpressed:

Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programmes. Select the .NET Framework and click change/remove (I know it sounds a bit odd). Select REPAIR and let it do it's stuff.

Remember that this software is provided free. Rick (Paint.NET developer) is very busy developing version 4.0 and not here to solve issues that may not even be related to Paint.NET. That said, Rick makes himself available on the forum a great deal - more than most other developers I know of.

If you're clueless then don't go installing/uninstalling stuff randomly.

There is no change/remove button beside the .NET framework? What OS & service packs are you using?

7 SP1

to clarify, it's not in the list of uninstallible programs you're thinking of.

only in the add/remove services menu.

It might be time to try Post #22 as mentioned above. Following that I'm all out of suggestions.
