jennyd Posted April 28, 2008 Share Posted April 28, 2008 Hi - I'm new here, so I'm hoping this is being posted in the right place. None of the others looked better... From the top: I just downloaded Paint.Net, having stumbled across the forums and having enjoyed the questions and answers (and some of the sarcasm, too). When I tried to run it, having extracted from the zip download, I got a message that I needed to follow a link to Microsoft and download some framework (mark 3.5, I think) to upgrade what's on my PC. I started to do this, but blanched when I saw it was 194 MB or something! I like messing about with paint and image software, and website design, but I don't know whether I'm okay with downloading something that major just to run a program. Is this usual? My PC's only a couple of years old and I'm connected to the Net via a broadband dongle that claims 7.2 Mbps but never gets anywhere close, so that download would have to be during my next meal! Have others had to go this route, and was everything OK? Where does the framework download need to go? (or does it direct itself?) Sorry about all the questions, but downloading large amounts of data (even from known sources) has been known to freak me out... Thanks for any advice (and any sarcasm). :shock: Quote Jennifer http://www.algarve-beach-life.com My minimalist sig pic... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
