Sequencing Paint.NET 3.X

Type of Sequencing : MNT
Sequencer : 4.6(x64)
OS : Win7

Issue : There are three errors you may get while sequencing paint.net

Error 1 : The below screen shot error is thrown when the shortcut is launched during monitoring phase.

Error 2 : After stop monitoring it fails to capture the WinSxS components.

Error 3 : The below error is thrown in launch phase and the same when tested on client machine as well.

We tried to sequence on WinXP with all the redistributables and deployed on Win7 but with no success.

Solution : The below methods helped us to make the Paint.Net application to be sequenced successfully:

1) Edited the MSI to remove x86 manifest components
2) Prior to monitoring exclude CSIDL_Desktop, Windows\Installer and disable system restore.
3) Install the modified msi with  CHECKFORUPDATES=0 as a parameter
4) Dont launch the shortcut during monitoring phase
5) Stop monitor
6) Begin monitor
7) Launch the shortcut
