Help..can't access my paint.net? .Net 2 framework error


Recommended Posts

Hi

When I attempt to open my Paint.net ...(which Ihaven't used for awhile) I'm now getting an error message to install .NET framework 2... so I go to Microsoft to do so...when go toinstall the version I'm told to this is the error message I get...

Setup cannot continue because this version of the .NET Framework is incompatible with a previously installed one. For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906894.

CAUSE

The .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 is a later version of the .NET Framework 2.0. The earlier version cannot be installed over the later version.

So what is a girl to do? :? ?

Any help really appreciated... btw, I'm no techie..

Thanks

Moved to Troubleshooting

Take a look at the sticky'd topics in this new forum; see if they help. :-)

Are you logged into your PC as an admin?

Do. Installation is usually limited to admins.

You're running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Windows Vista, right?

I don't understand what he's suggesting. :-)

Anyway...you can't uninstall Paint.NET without having the .NET framework installed. Try installing the .NET framework v3.5, uninstalling Paint.NET, then re-downloading it and re-installing it.
