Cannot run

Recommended Posts

I downloaded Paint.NET not long ago, and recently wanted to draw something, but when I tried to run it, nothing happened, i tried running from the start menu, and from a shortcut, and finally the main .exe file. So I figured I'd remove it and re-install, but while trying to remove the program via Add/Remove programs, I received this error:

There is a problem with this Windows Installer package.

A program required for this install to complete could not

be run. Contact your support personnel or package


And when trying to repair the program I received this error:

The feature you are trying to use is on a

network resource that is unavailable.

Click on OK the try again, or enter an alternate path to a

folder containing the intallation package

'PaintDotNet_1931808778.msi' in the box below.

Upon clicking OK I recieved the message:

The path 'C:Program


cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this

location and try again, or try to find the installation

package 'PaintDotNet_1931808778.msi' in a folder from

which you can install the product Paint.NET v2.5 Beta


When trying the browse command for trying to find the right file, and searching for the file using the search function on my computer, I couldn't find it.

I cannot remove the files using Add/Remove Programs, I cannot repair the program or install anew. Any help possibly offered would be much appreciated, whether it's a fix, or advice of somewhere else to receive help.
