4.0 (Apr 13, 2010)
Just to clear up some confusion, there's just the two versions to install. Basically skip v1.1 because there are very few programs out there that require it. So all you need is v3.5 SP1 (this installer includes v2 & v3) and weighs in at 240mb plus v4 that weighs in at 50mb (36mb for x86 only).
4.0 RC (Feb 12, 2010)
radiomaffia, the different .net framework versions install side by side. Programs written in .net target a particular version that you must have installed in order for the application to run, otherwise you will get a random error. So it sounds like you removed the earlier version of .net and is the cause of your problems.
betasun, no from the paint.net website it states that it targets 3.5 SP1 so you will still require that version in order to run the program. It is possible to get programs written in earlier versions of dotnet to run in later versions which you can google supportedRuntime for but there can be breaking changes in new versions of dotnet which can causes problems.
CyberDoc999, regarding performance the issue during say WPF development is that there can be 2 or 3 different controls that performs the same task one with basic functionality but uses less computer resources and one with more advanced functionality but uses more computer resources. So slow apps isn't necessarily the fault of the .net framework. Microsoft even release tools that can analyse your application you've written for performance letting you know the areas that are causing your app to be slow. I personally think the performance of the .net framework itself is acceptable but more can be done in the developer tooling by making performance related issues more obvious to help developers create better performing apps.
3.5 Service Pack 1 (Oct 9, 2009)
ron_marz, this installer does contain 2.0 SP2 through to 3.5 SP1 inclusive. Although DotNet 1.1 is separate and so will 4.0 be when it's released.
TGB72, I've used the full installer perfectly fine on computers with no internet connection (it does attempt to check for updates but doesn't throw an error due to no internet connection). My guess is that you had the DotNet 3.5 installer and when it checked for updates it will have downloaded the SP1 bits.
I do agree that on older computers WPF applications are slow (WinForm apps still seem ok to me), but on newer computers I wouldn't have thought WPF applications were that slow although could still do with some improvement.
4.0 Beta 1 (May 22, 2009)
Ryusennin, what it means by that is that you can't have dotnet 1.0 and dotnet 4.0 installed at the same time. You will need to uninstall dotnet 1.0 from the control panel before being able to install dotnet 4.0. I gather this restriction should be gone when beta 2 is released.
8.3.4 Build 1342 Beta (Jan 24, 2008)
This may not look flash, kind of like a Win98 app but it does it's job very well. Allows you to view stitched or panasonic photos in full-screen, and can automatically scroll. I've found this useful and has become one of the standard apps I install on any of my home computers.

Thanks, I was just thinking about this very thing yesterday, keep confidential files in dropbox private from other employees in the small business where I work. This is a good starting point.

@tontito, Any system processing or storing credit cards have to be PCI compliant which means the use of a strong encryption system like AES which is not breakable via brute force with current computer technology. That said encryption requires the use of a secret code to encrypt or decrypt data so if the hacker got access to that then he would have the credit card details.

@tigger4046 Then how do you perform database queries if all the data is encrypted? You'd have to retrieve the entire 77 million row table, decrypt and filter all the data in memory just to retrieve one row and this just for one server request, when you could expect millions of simultaneous requests at the same time.
Their only mistake was not encrypting the passwords and security question answers.

Just so you know, if you right click on the toolbar you can uncheck "Tabs on Top"..

> I can happily report that engineers were very receptive to input
Really? I tried to request that they expose "keep source formatting" to programmers when copying and pasting slides between powerpoint presentations because I've had to write a pile of code to achieve the same effect and experiencing 6 separate bugs (that you don't get if you use keep source formatting in the GUI) that I've spent over two months with Microsoft Support engineers and got no where (I also experienced a number of bugs on the support.microsoft.com under NZ that you don't get under US but no one has been interested to hear, and by phone got transferred 5 times before giving up). Office isn't even listed under connect.microsoft.com. Compare this to ASP.NET where I've been able to file a number of bugs and they simply get looked into and fixed without fuss. So I would be very interested to know which engineers you've been talking to.
