Windows 8 64-bit
I tried installing Jasc Paintshop Pro 9 (got it when I had a Windows XP) on my new laptop. The software never fully installed. It sat at the 100% mark for over an hour and never completed. I had to leave, so I ended the task and closed up the laptop. I came back and saw that it was at least in the start menu, so I tried to use it. It runs in the background but never loads to be used. I tried going into the Compatibility tab in Properties and changing the Combatibility mode to run as Windows XP (Service Pack 3), that did nothing. I tried unistalling it using the Control Panel in Windows, but it didn't actually get rid of it. It removed it from the Programs list is Control Panel, but it is still available everywhere else. I also tried to just re-install it, but it said that a current install is in progress. Obviously that's not the case, but it still says it even after a couple of reboots.
I'm not sure if just the install went bad or what, but now I can't get rid of it. Can someone give me some insight on what might be the issue? Can someone advise me on how to get rid of it? Also, is there anyway to make it work once everything is squared away?
