Cannot Finish Paint.NET Installation

Recommended Posts

Press Start, open the Control Panel, then click System.  You should get a dialog called "View basic information about your computer"; at the top, it should say "Windows edition," with the version you have listed below.  I, for instance, am on my work computer, and it says "Windows 7 Professional," then some copyright info, and then "Service Pack 1."


You can upload a screenshot of that screen, or just type in the info from that top section (and maybe the info from the "System" section in the middle, as well).  Crop out the "Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings" and "Windows activation" sections if they appear.


If you need instructions on how to take a screenshot, take a look here.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. 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.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

What version of paint.net are you trying to install? 


3.5.11 should work.  The Alpha version of 4.0 will NOT install on Vista: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/27530-reminder-paintnet-40-will-require-windows-7/
