The feature you are trying to use is on network resource That is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder Containing the installation package 'PaintDotNet_1692900670.msi' in the box below.

The incomplete removal of the previous version has likely left remnants of the application on your system.  These should be removed prior to re-installation.


For help with the process, follow this link:  http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/692-install-update-or-uninstall-trouble-read-this/


In that thread read item #3 and then the second post where the Windows Installer CleanUp utility is mentioned.  That is what you have to use to remove any bits of Paint.NET that still reside on your system.  Be careful with this utility - it is very powerful.


Following complete removal - try downloading a fresh version from here: http://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html


If you have further problems, please post here again.

That's a file association issue.  Here's how to change it (Win7/Vista - I guessed): http://www.winvistaclub.com/t19.html
