Troubles installing 3.01


Recommended Posts

Mate ever since the latest version I've been having some troubles. At first it wouldn't install the update so I tried a clean install and now i get all these errors when installing... (Sorry about the image sizes. Microsoft paint isn't exactly hot on resizing).

Aftertrying to continue after this error nothing happens.

The details for that error in the second image can be seen below.

Any ideas :S ?

See the end of this message for details on invoking 
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:





When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

The forum block the antislashes.

He means the PdnSetup folder in the %TEMP% one. (%TEMP% is a redirect alias to your windows temporary folder).

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

When you have the errors on screen, like you show in the screenshot above: can you open Task Manager, go to the Processes tab, and tell me how many copies of SetupShim.exe and MirrorShim.exe there are? There should be 1 of each but for some reason I have an inkling that the installer is being run twice. The wizard handles this just fine but I've come to find that some of the shell code that unpacks everything does not (go figure). In which case you might (crossing fingers and holding breath here) be able to continue with the installer so long as you leave the error dialogs open. Anyway let me know how it goes.

Ok here's what I think happened.

PaintDotNet_3_01.exe is what you download: it is an NSIS-based* self-extracting EXE with a little script that says, "unpack all the files, then run SetupShim.exe, and once it has exited delete all the files we just unpacked."

SetupShim.exe checks to make sure .NET 2.0 is installed, and then runs SetupFrontEnd.exe and waits for it to exit.

SetupFrontEnd.exe is the setup wizard you see up there.

Somehow, SetupShim.exe is crashing -- I honestly have no idea how. But when you click to close that error dialog you are also terminating SetupShim.exe. Which then causes the NSIS wrapper to be told that SetupShim.exe has exited: and then it goes and deletes all the files that were unpacked, even though SetupFrontEnd.exe is still alive and kicking. This includes PaintDotNet.msi which is pretty darned important for installation.

* NSIS = Nullsoft Scriptable Installer System, or something like that

  • 1 year later...

The installer triggerd my (crapy) antivirus, etrust 8.1 with VET engine and latest pattern, it reported a Virus:

The Win32/Rewas!generic was detected in C:\USERS\MyUser\APPDATA\LOCAL\TEMP\PDNSETUP2\MIRRORSHIM.EXE.

Machine: blabla, User: domain\MyUser.

Status: File was cured; system cure performed.

I'm affraid this is a false possitive from my Antivirus, still I wanted to mention this.
