Can't install after update...

Recommended Posts

When Paint.NET 4.0.3 became available I was asked if I wanted to install the update after closing Paint.NET. I, eager to install a better Paint.NET clicked "yus plox". After closing Paint.NET it started to uninstall itself, it then began installing the new version. As soon as it attempted to install the new version I got an error. I've been without Paint.NET ever since.


The error in question:
"Fatal error during installation.", damn glad to have the "details" there to help!


The log file read the following:


"Key not valid for use in specified state.", wow such elaborate!

I have not been able to find a fix for these errors anywhere on the internet and I just want Paint.NET. I wrecked my registry and ripped out everything "Paint.NET", deleted all temporary and installation files, deleted all installed files, etc. I even tried removing all RSA keys, assuming that was what they were b*tching about, but that didn't do much either.

Well this seems to be a windows problem that I may owe to the last update, yeay! I can't use system restore since it is spammed with installations for Paint.NET and reinstalling Microsoft .NET doesn't work either... Not entirely sure where this leaves me, any tips?

Search around this forum for "1603" and try those steps to fix the problem.

Thanks but the first place I looked for a solution was, of course, this forum. And it turns out 1603 is the most vague error possible so it doesn't seem very relevant... Anyway I am sure the solution is not on this forum. I have contacted Microsoft and of course, I will post the solution here.
