PaintDotNet_731285494.msi Not being generated.

Recommended Posts

Hello, and thank you in advance.


      Anyways, when attempting to install paint.net from the websites downloadable .msi, it gives me a window that says the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

click ok to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package

'PaintDotNet_731285494.msi' in the box below


in that box I see:C:\Program Files (x86)\Paint.NET\Staging\


which does not contain this file but 2 other files: when selected it says they are the wrong file.


upon exiting it says the source file does not exist.


no log was generated, as far as I can tell.


I had paint.net on this pc before, but, one day it and all other related files had vanished.


I am on a network alone with no other devices, I'm runing windows 7 sp1 x64 with 4g ram and 100g HDD and cannot for the life of me figure out how to fix this, I would verry much appreciate any help that can be given.

This thread is old - but the solution(s) might still work: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/17183-problem-with-installation-because-of-missing-file/


The last post indicates the Windows Clean Up Tool did the trick.
