Can't install without Admin rights on Windows 7


Recommended Posts

I am not interested in Shell Integration or anything that would require Admin rights in Windows 7, including File Associations.  I can setup a file association to the program without Admin rights.


Anyone have a ZIP file of Paint.NET that I can unzip?  I don't have an 'extra computer' with admin rights available.


Or does anyone know of a Paint app for Windows that does not require me to run an 'Installer' or require Admin rights?

Correct. You cannot install Paint.NET without administrator rights.


Paint.NET is not distributed as a ZIP file, and it's not something we provide or allow to be distributed here on the forum.


Your best bet is to search for a "portable" version of Paint.NET. I believe LiberKey has one, I gave them permission to do that awhile back.
