Net Framework Initialization Error...

    Question

  • Hi, I hope someone can help me.

    I'm having this problem since I upgrade my computer built Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium. Every time I try to run an application that requires .net framework 4.0 or higher, a message like this appears:

    "To run this application, you first must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework:
    v.4.0.30319
    Contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET Framework."

    Before doing this post I made some research, I uninstalled and reinstalled .net framework a couple of times, but nothing worked. I ran the Verification tool and it failed but I don't know the reason. I used system restore and reinstalled but didn't work either. I was monitoring this post (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/netfxsetup/thread/72edae0e-9406-40a0-aed5-295cea8a5110) about a person with my same problem but nothing worked for me so I am asking for help again. If this can help I am using an HP Pavilion dv6-1247cl Notebook PC.

    I hope somebody to help me. Thanks.

  • Hi JCRivera,

    Thank you for your post in MSDN forum!

     

    Could you please clarify some questions with me together?

    Have you installed .NET Framework 4 on your machine?

     

    Based on your description, I would provide you some information with you.

    1, Windows 7 is including .net framework 2.0 SP2, .net framework 3.0 SP2 and .net framework 3.5 SP1.

    2, Windows 7 is not including .net framework 4.0.

    At first, could you please invest whether .net framework 3.5 is installed correctly on your machine or not.

    Secondly, could you please invest whether .net framework 4 is installed on your machine or not.

    As your verification log, it seems that .net framework 4 is not installed on your machine. 

    If .net framework 4 is not installed on your machine, I would encourage that you could refer the following steps one by one.

    1, could you please invest whether.NET Framework 4 is uninstalled thoroughly on your machine or not?

    2, could you download .NET Framework 4 from the following link?

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=0a391abd-25c1-4fc0-919f-b21f31ab88b7

    3, unable your anti-virus software and some security software

    4. Run your setup file as administrator

    5, install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 again

     

    If the installation is failed, you could follow the following steps one by one.

    1, you could download ‘Collect.exe’, which could help you to collect information during installing products. The following link is: http://go.microsoft.com/?LinkId=8967043

    How to use this tool, you could click the link as follows?

    2, Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")

    The above step could ensure your installation log is only including the latest installation logs.

    3, unable your anti-virus software and some security software

    4. Run your setup file as administrator

    5, re-install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 again

     

    It will create a file named %temp%\vslogs.cab on your system.

    If it does not work, you could refer your log files to narrow down your issue.

    Or you could send your log files to me. (My E-Mail: v-xugong@microsoft.com)

    Look forward for your good news!

  • I have several versions of the .NET Framework installed on my machine.

    Today, every project I try to open tells me I need to install that version of the .NET Framework:

    v2.0 missing

    As you can see in the screenshot below, I have multiple versions of the .NET Framework installed (and they have been for some time):
