I didn't realize that I hadn't logged in and didn't want to retype the post so I used to another username. The above post was made by Russell .

I even tried to install PaintDotNet_2_6_Alpha1.exe...

SAME THING!

There must be something that the earlier version is leaving in the system to cause this.

I would like to hear if anyone else is having this problem with the installation and whether not they had the older version installed.

Your permissions on that registry key have been reset to something that doesn't give you access to it. Sometimes having many antispyware or anti-"suspicious activity" programs running can do this.

Rick thanks for the reply.

I shut down all spyware and firewall progs. and the exact same thing happens.

I don't know what to do next...

Is the older version still available?? I'll make due with it if I must.

So the anti-whatever apps generally don't block this in real time. They, or other security utilities, may have set this permission at one time in the past. Registry key permissions work a lot like file permissions.

You should first make sure that the permissions on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE are set correctly. You can do this with regedit.exe by right clicking on the key and selecting Permissions.

Start at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Paint.NET, and verify the permissions. If you go to Advanced there is also an "Effective Permissions" tab where you can type in your user name (after pushing the "Select" button, yeah the UI is a bit awkward) and see what access you effectively have without having to decipher the Allow / Deny list.

Also you'll note, halfway down the page in this forum, is this thread: http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=569

kuzkot describes a procedure that seems to have worked for himself and ArtD0dger (3rd to last post).

MAN YOUR GOOD!!!!

Like a charm I'm in and it's up and running.

I have what might be a stupid question. Will my changing permissions in any way open my machine up for attacks?
