mnc54 Posted April 12, 2008 Share Posted April 12, 2008 First, I am running WindowsXP SP2 Home with 1.5gb RAM and 2.8Gh processor. I was successfully running Paint.net version 3.20 when I attempted to upgrade to 3.22 in January the installation failed. I e-mailed paint.net about the problem and sent the error log, but never heard back. I decided to let it go until a newer version was released. I have now attempted to install 3.30 with even less success. The installation fails after about one quarter of the progress bar fills. It just flashes and stops. There is no error log created or error code posted. From what I can tell it creates an empty folder named pdnsetup2 in the temp file found in Documents and Settings\HP-Owner\Local Settings. I have read all of the postings regarding similar problems and did the following as a result: 1. uninstalled and reinstalled all of my Net Framework Programs including 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5. 2. I used Windows Installer Cleaner to remove Paint.net. After I did this I found I still had another working Paint.net program that was not shown either in Add & Remove Programs or in Windows Installer Cleaner. I manually removed that program and all of it's registry entries, so that as far as I could tell there were no remnants of Paint.net either in my program or any folders or in the registry. 3. I then deleted all zip and unzipped installation files and the pdnsetup2 folder and redownloaded and unzipped the 3.30 installation files. I reran the installation and got exactly the same problem. So now I have NO working version of Paint.net and no idea in how to proceed. I hope someone may have some suggestions. Thank you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
