installing Paint.net

Other than technical issues that I'm not aware of, one way to do it would be to uninstall Paint.NET and .NET framework 1.1

Do a complete uninstall where you use the "Search" feature in the Windows control panel and delete any file still left after the running the uninstaller (it happens).

Then go to the "Run" command in the Windows control panel and typing in "Regedit" and going to "Edit" and then "Find" and typing in Paint.NET and .NET framework to get rid of any references to it.

After this, click on the installers and start from scratch with a new installation.

The very same thing happens to me -- I get the error message just at the end of the install. My error message is the same as SAMKMM's, except the number is different.

Error message:

A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Staging\PaintDotNet_75354752.msi

I checked, and the file doesn't exist on my computer.

Check out this earlier thread: http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=243

In the second to last post, by me, I detail a procedure that will hopefully work for you.

I wouldn't be surprised if that's what the CleanUp utility does, except that it uses the documented Windows Installer registry keys and goes straight to it :) I'd feel safer using (and recommending) that utility as opposed to just clobbering anything with the PaintDotNet*.msi text.
