For anyone that is having trouble installing 3.5.11

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am a long time user of Paint.NET though never registered here but it seems great so far! Great Program also, but anyway I was having a lot of trouble installing 3.5.11 on my new system so I will explain what worked for me and what I used.

1. Make sure the latest version of Microsoft Net Framework is installed.

2. If you have continued problem go to the link below and click on the green button that says "RUN NOW", a download will start, open the download and follow the directions. When the time comes to choose the program you are having trouble with choose "Paint.net 3.5.11" when is ask's did this fix your problem try to install paint.net 3.5.11 again and if it installs then click yes, simple as that!

Hope this helps!

I'm going to move this over to the Troubleshooting forum.  Thanks!

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

What download link do I use? I have tried the download links that are on the homepage and all I get is a bunch of junk. The first attempt updated my VLC media player but after that, clicking on the version 3.5.11 download button at the top downloaded plurpush, regcleanpro, mypcbackup, advanced system protector, etc. When I declined all of these, I got nothing, so I tried to accept through them. I was able to then uninstall all of them.

There is the download link at the top and 4 download buttons on the homepage. Does one of them download just getpaint?

Hi Poc - welcome to the forum. 


Downloading Paint.NET can be a bit confusing.  You need to use the underlined text link in the top right corner of the webpage.  See this link for more: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/27517-dumb-question-which-link-do-you-click-to-download-the-program/
