Installer fails catastrophically on non-default path


Recommended Posts

I tried to install Paint.NET in a directory other than the default path.

The installer created a system restore point and then showed the following error message:


Note that the error message mentions the default installation path. It should not attempt to access this path when I've told it to install somewhere else.

After that, it showed a dialog claiming to be finalising the system restore point:


but actually the installer was hanging at this point. It did not finish even after 1½ hours, at which point I closed it.

The actual application appears to be working correctly despite these problems.
