    My problem is that I get error messages when trying to install or uninstall Paint.net. The problem may have started with uninstalling Net Framework 2.0 before I uninstalled Paint.net, but now I cant get it to run. I tried re-installing Net Framework then attempted to uninstall Paint.net but that had no effect.
    I get the following error messages:
    "A network error occured while attempting to read from the file C:\Program Files\Paint.net\Staging\PaintDoNet_1884892242.msi."

    "There is a problem with this windows installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run."

    Please help as I really want Paint.net to work again!

    Paint.net is an image editor. My net framework came from microsoft.com.

    most certainly ive tried that. Ive gone through everything i could find to fix this, looked through log files, searched the registry, checked services and permissions, system restore, nothing has helped. The only thing i found was a reference to a program called "NGen", which i have no idea what that is, but it seems to have everything to do with my problem, I think anyway.
    I doubt anyone can help me with this, this was my last resort, posting on these forums. My problem is probably so unique that it can only be fixed by re-installing windows. I would pay for another solution.

    Can you post a link where you downloaded or purchased Paint.net? I can't find anything on the web about this application.

    Here you go DoubleHelix, I found this link stickied in the forum
    wilson44512 mentioned in his post.

    Paint.NET

    Looks like it has a very respectable list of features for something that is open source and free to use.
