Hi all,
Today i wanted to use Print Screen for something, but i found out that when i went to start--programs--accessories - there was no paint there. i just used it yesterday! i searched my Windows dir, searched through start--search - not found the paint. i tried reinstalling it through the add-remove in the control panel, but it asks me for the XP CD, and i don't have it - it's my school's - and i'm on vacation! is there any way to download\get ms-paint again?

maybe you can ask a friend over MSN or ICQ or something to send you the paint.exe file (make sure the friend also has XP installerd)

no, i typed mspaint, but i just now searched what you wrote and i found these three:
mspaint (help file)
mspaint (another help file)
mspaint.exe.mui

not the executable itself

what if you rename the .exe.mui to just .exe and try running it?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

That's what I was thinking php-webdesign, but it seems the original mspaint.exe is 332 kb so 88 kb is too small.
