paint.net.4.0.20.install.exe

When I try to run this inside of Sandboxie I get this message

I'm clearly on Window 10, fully updated as of today, and use latest Sandboxie version (stable).

Any ideas?

To add to this, it wont even run Paint.NET, gives the same error, Paint.NET.4.0.19 worked just fine.

Maybe this is related to the following change in version 4.0.20?
New: .NET Framework 4.7 is now required, and will be automatically installed if needed
Is your installed .NET Framework version 4.7?

Edit: I see you are using Windows 10. The .NET Framework should be up to date then! I can confirm the issue, version 4.0.20 won't run sandboxed and shows the message always.

Yeah as you can tell, I'm on Windows 10 so .NET should not be the issue, the installer and Paint.NET it self run fine outside of Sandboxie, and previous versions also ran fine inside Sandboxie, just not this version.

Hello Special,

I can repro the issue and, so far, haven't found a workaround other than installing it on the host and running it Sandboxed.

The latest version I successfully tested can be found here:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=24030

I'll update this thread if anything new comes up.

Regards,
Barb.-

With version 4.0.19 were you able to copy-paste or use the line tools in the sandboxed paint.net? On W7 that results in a crash, as documented here in this two and a half year old problem report. Wonder if it's different on W10.

Not sure about copy/paste but everything as far as I know worked well on 4.0.19 in sandboxie, I've never had it crash on me and I used the thing for hours at a time, probably a hundred hours or so just on that version.

Any update to this yet? Have you found the cause, can we expect a fix in the next version, etc.

This was fixed with Beta 5.25.4.

What the heck, it doesn't work anymore... I was using it all day yesterday in Sandboxie and it worked fine, today I'm getting the same error as the OP.

EDIT: So you probably want to edit out that [SOLVED] tag because it's not yet solved.
