    Fix-it Tool Needed To Install Newer Version Of Paint.net?


    Hello,
    I just tried to update Paint.net unsuccessfully.

    Click image for larger version.

    After some Googling I found that it didn't completely un-istall the version I had working so I need the Fix-It Tool.
    Is this true?
    Unfortunately I can't find it.

    It installed straight off for me. Try selecting custom install rather than express.

    I did choose the custom install.

    I've installed and updated Paint.net many times before.
    Many others have experienced what just happened to me.

    I opened my Paint.NET program today, after not using it for some time, and got a notification there was an update. I chose to Install on Exit, and let it download in the background. I then closed the program, and it told me it would install the update now; "Optimizing, and installed successfully". Opened the program back up, and it appears to have worked properly.

    Glad you found the solution for your problem.

    That's how I've successfully updated in the past.
    I won't update "now" from now on.

    Cheers!
