Problem installing and using Paint.NET


Recommended Posts

I found this programme while searching for a new graphic tool and I have spent the last 3 hours trying to get it to run.

I downloaded 2 different installs and I run into the same issue when I try to get to the programme.

My operating system is XP Home with SP2, and I have Microsoft.NET Framework v1.0.3705 and v1.1.4322 installed.

I have tried to install the programme using PaintDotNet_2_5_RC1.exe and it tries to read my floppy drive, after which I get the following errors:

SetupFrontEnd.exe - application has generated an exception that could not be handled.

Process id=0x274(628), Thread id=0x74c(1868)

I then click on "Cancel" to run the debug and get:

No debugger found

cordbg.exe !a 0x274

The install then stops.

I installed the programme, it seems, using PaintDotNet_2_1b.msi, but when I click on the desktop icon to run the programme, it also tries to go to my floppy drive and then I get the following errors:

PaintDotNet.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services

application has generated an exception that could not be handled.

Process id=0x754(1876), Thread id=0xa50(2640)

Clicking on "Cancel" gives me the same debug error.

I cannot run the programme at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
