Any Ideas ? And fast please ! I need to use paint.net as soon as possible.

thanks :)

PS:

And yes, I tried lots of things including deleting registry files and installing pdn 3.08 ... none worked.

Ok, I know: could someone plese zip the paint.net installation directory and upload it to a server ?I would appreciate it.

1. What did I do wrong ?

2. Yes, I use it like 2 years now

3. It is on the list but there's no remove button to remove it, also I already removed the old folder, a new one just appears :(

Leif, that doesn't help I can't install it anywhere on the system

Posted in the wrong forum. This goes in Bugs and Troubleshooting. Just wait, someone will move it soon.

 

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.

There's your problem. If Paint.NET is already installed it can't install it's self again unless the 1st install has been uninstalled and removed. I found this out when making a Paint.NET boot CD. However after I did the CD and reinstalled Paint.NET on the computer it let me use both the CD and the install on the hard drive.

Anyway go back into add/remove programs and again find Paint.NET and click it. When it highlight bule there should be a remove button. If not then what does come up ? (This is why you should never delete a program but Uninstall it)

See the installer is still seeing Paint.NET installed and wont install it again. Instead it gives a msi error.

If all else fails you can go to another computer and install paint.net to a jump drive or CD till you can get it uninstalled from your computer. Look at my sig for the boot cd tutorial if you take this route. How ever if you don't need to use Paint.NET fast then I think you should take the time to fix your installion of Paint.NET.

Sorry for not using English Windows but you can clearly see my problem on that picture.

Again, please, someone upload the paint.net installation directory somewhere.

I could go to another computer...which is just about like 15 KM away from here. I don't need to use paint.net fast anymore ... So the best thing to do is to format my hard disk and install OS, right ?

what does "redko" mean?

And don't be sorry for not using English; not everyone finds it as simple as I do. :-) Several of our dearest posting members on this forum don't, at least not natively.

This may not work but you could try it nonetheless.

In your Program C:/Files/Paint.NET, double click on the application named 'PdnRepair'. It's helped me in the past and might help you. It won't do anything wrong to your computer or other files so you're safe to use it.

Try it and see.

-what does "redko" mean?

It means rarely, I was reinstalling it, also I have lots of programs which have no remove button... They're all used "rarely".

-Try it and see.

I can't try it since Paint.NET folder is empty ! There's just a folder called "Staging" and to Windows installer files called "PaintDotNet_395935946" Both about 4,6 Mb

I will remember :)

None dares to upload the installation directory ? Torrent, rapidshare-like sites ....

I think this is the easiest solution.
