Paint.NET v2.1b will not install on Windows Vista Beta 1

Recommended Posts

Vista currently does some weird things related to how it reports the presence of Ink (the Tablet PC feature that handles drawing). Paint.NET 2.0 and 2.1 will not work in Vista. We'll make sure that 2.2 does work, however.

I just discovered that the default configuration regarding .NET 1.1 on Windows Vista is Prohibited (IIS, Web Service Extensions). So, if an application is built to expect that version of .NET, it won't run, anyway.

As with ASP (looking for which is how I stumbled upon the .NET 1.1 restriction), you can change the value from Prohibited, but I think the beta is unstable enough not to rock the boat right now...
