    Error 1722 (and Paint.net Error 1603) Can't Uninstall/Update Paint.net


    Hi all,

    I'm sure glad there are forums out there because I'm at a loss on this thus far.

    Paint.net has an update available to 3.5.6 from 3.5.5. When I go to install the new version part of that process is uninstalling the old version. It seems to error out at this point and gives me the error 1603, however, through research I've found a way to provide more specific details by looking at the PdnMsiInstall file at it says...

    I've tried several things that Paint.net forums suggests as well as google my butt off, but nothing seems to work.

    I have tried
    • disabling my anti-virus and firewall
    • repairing .net framework
    • uninstalling and reinstalling .net framework 4 client profile
    • repairing paint.net (errors out)
    • Making sure the 'Windows Modulur Installer' is set to manual, not disabled
    • re-registering msi installer
    • maybe some others...


    Also I have found this... fatal installation error 1603 Fix - Paint.NET Forum

    But I'm timid to try it out... typical instructions quoted here...

    Right click on My computer and go to properties look under system type to see if u have 32bit or 64bit this will determine what version of trustedInstaller to use

    1.Restart your computer and pres F8 repeativly until u get to the windows advance menu, Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode with networking" and press your Enter key

    2.Go to start type in cmd in search and run it as admin now type in
    takeown /f C:\Windows\Servicing\ hit enter

    next type in:
    cacls C:\Windows\Servicing /G username:F change username to your account name

    example:
    cacls C:\Windows\Servicing /G mike:F


    3.Go to My computer--> C drive-->windows--> servicing
    Drag and drop the TrustedInstaller.exe 32 bit or 64 bit in the servicing folder

    4.Right click on the TrustedInstaller go to properties--Security tab-->edit-->add-->under "enter the objects names" type NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller
    click check names then hit ok

    now under groups or user names select trusted installer and check all the permissions hit ok the hit ok again
    RESTART YOUR COMPUTER

    5.now type in services.msc in search or run open it and find TrustedInstaller right cllick it and go to properties and set the start up type to manual hit apply then ok now on the left side it has a discription click on start the service

    Instead of getting so deep, 1st thing I'd try is uninstalling paint.net using the free Revo Uninstaller

    Revo

    Then, if it is successful, try to install the new version.

    If no luck, try download this small program (no install necessary) and boot into safe mode, and run the installer from safe mode

    Safe MSI

    This small program just enables you to easily start the windows installer in safe mode. In safe mode, just the bare basics are loaded, and anything that is interfering with the uninstall might be disabled.

    Try Revo to uninstall, then new version install 1st though, as it appears to be the uninstall that is thwarting you. A Guy

    A GUY,

    Thank you for your response. I'm sorry I didn't include in the original post that for some reason Revo does not see Paint.net. It doesn't show up. ??? It does in fact show up in add/remove, but not there...

    I tried Safe MSI in safe mode, but when I went to uninstall Paint.net after running Safe MSI, I got the same error. Windows installer could not finish (something or other).

    What now?

    Update. I have now also tried the MSI Cleanup Utility and SFC /SCANNOW. Neither worked...

    Are you right clicking the installer, and choosing Run as administrator? This may well be a Windows Installer problem, rather than a paint.net issue. A Guy
