Unable to Uninstall, Repair or Reinstall!

Hello there.

 

I had deleted paint.net. Then, about a month later, I wanted to reinstall it again. I tried to reinstall it today as I usually do after I clean my computer of viruses and such. But when I tried to do so, I realized that I had dead shortcuts for the program, and that's never really a problem since they're just short cuts and not the actual file. But somewhere along the way, I deleted an important asset for paint.net and I cannot uninstall it because I deleted the fille needed to be able to do so!

 

And I read the other forums about what others had said about the: "Another program is downloading and to finish the other install and then try again." Notice; but that doesn't seem to be the problem with my computer considering that I haven't gone to Windows 10. (By choice.) So there IS nothing else downloading.

 

I proceeded to the Programs and Features where the source is so that I could delete the file from there, but it would not let me no matter what I did and there was no way to be able to fix it because the only option given is 'OK'

But there was a new option: 'Repair.'

So I tried to Repair the file but I keep getting the same notice stating that: "The feature you are trying to use is on another network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package

'PaintDotNet_x64_856501829.msi' in the box below.

So I proceeded to the download page and got the exact file (Trust me, I checked.) and I have it saved on my computer. But when I put it in the file that it asks for into the box, it says: "The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it."

It just keeps looping around and contradicting everything that it says to do! So how do I access it!? Please... I really am at a loss for words here.

Have you tried the uninstall steps here?  (especially #4!)

 

Never, never, NEVER delete a program without uninstalling it.  Even if you don't want to install it again, it'll cause problems.

 

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.

Hello, can't uninstall or install either on my Windows 10. No pending updates, just checked. So, here's what happens: 
1. The installation starts 
2. Express 
3. Agree 
4. "Removing prev. version"
5. Error 1618
5.  "Another installation is already in process." - you can see in the attachment 
 
I'v read prev. Posts in the forum but couldn't find anything concrete. Can you help?

Try using Revo Uninstaller Free to remove the previous version of Paint.NET. Use the Advanced option in Revo.

It will hopefully remove most of its components during uninstalltion. Then try installing the newest version of Paint.NET after.
