I tried to install paintdotnet w/.net framework but it kept hanging up. So I tried installing .NET framework but it hangs at one particular point, while registering "system.EnterpriseServices.dll", while executing c:\windows\microsoft.net\Framework\v2.0.50727\"RegSvcs.exe" /bootstrapi.

Any help would be appreciated but if there is a diff forum I should go to pl. let me know.

I have a 1.8GHz PC w/1G RAM, 50G free space, XP Pro w/SP2. BTW I tried to install in both Admin mode and w/my user account which also has admin privileges.

while attempting to update to 3.01 I received several errors that

prevented me from installing 3.01 or from reinstalling 2.72.

I attempted the windows clean up utility but Paint.net was not listed.

I also repaired the .net 2.0 thinking that was the problem to no avail.

I am running XP, P-4 CPU 3GHz with a gig of ram

these first two come up at the same time.

1. MirrorShim.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.

2. SetupShim.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.

Behind them is the regular install screen, that does allow you to continue.

to the license agreement page, Then another error stating

3. Unhandled exception has occurred in a component in your application,

If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.

"Could not find file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Dave\Local

Settings\Temp\PdnSetup\PaintDotNet.msi'."

Clicking continue shows the "Paint.Net is being installed..."

This screen hangs forever with the Cancel, Back and Next buttons greyed out.

Any Ideas?

Thanks

I attempted the windows clean up utility but Paint.net was not listed.

What is the very first element of the list?

I ask this because we have seen some cases were Paint.NET wasn't clearly written in the list, but shown as "(no user) no name" .

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

Problem solved,

after the install failed I checked my temp files

I was able to execute the "SetupFrontEnd.exe"

in the "PdnSetup" folder. It ran thru the set up

without an issue. I hope this might be of some

help to others with the same issue.

Of course this still does not answer the question

as to why this was happening.

Bob, thank you for your help and input.

Dave...
