Can't re-install Net Framework 4 Client - Same or higher version of .Net Framework Client Profile has already been installed on this computer

    Question

  • I had been having trouble installing patches to .Net, so decided to unistall all .Net (Version 3.5 SP1 and Version 4.0).  Uninstall said it worked, but when I tried to install .Net Framework 4 Client, i get the following message:

    Same or higher version of .Net Framework 4 Client Profile has already been installed on this computer

    Only choice I'm given is to exit install.  If I look at installed programs, .Net is not listed anywhere (even using msiinv.exe).  And I noticed that in my Windows folder, there is still a Microsoft.NET folder, with much data.  Any help on how I can install again?

    Thanks

  • Hi Mannon,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     

    Have you tried MVP’s suggestion?

     

    I also recommend you use MsiInv tool to check if .NET Framework Extended or .NET Framework Multi-Language Pack is installed. If it is, please use MsiInv to uninstall them all.

     

    I also recommend you try to uninstall or repair .NET Framework 4 via command line: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2009/04/16/9553804.aspx

     

    If you have any other concerns, please feel free to let me know.
