Visual Studio 2005 WPF Extensions Problem

Answers

  • If you want to install the "Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .NET Framework 3.0 (WCF & WPF), November 2006 CTP" *after* you have installed .NET 3.0 Service Pack 1 you will receive a message saying

    "Setup has detected that a prerequisite is missing.  To use Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .NET Framework 3.0 (WCF & WPF), November 2006 CTP you must have the .NET Framework 3.0 runtime installed.  Please install the .NET Framework 3.0 runtime and restart setup."


    In this you either need to

    1) uninstall 3.0sp1, reinstall 3.0, install vsexwfx, reinstall 3.0sp1

    or

    2) or add the following value to your registry

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{15095BF3-A3D7-4DDF-B193-3A496881E003}]
    "DisplayName"="Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0"

    to "emulate" the presence of 3.0


    .NET Framework 3.0sp1 does not *update* 3.0 - it *replaces* 3.0 which causes installers checking for the presence of 3.0 to fail.

  • I found a solution here (http://blog.tfanshteyn.com/2008/01/fixing-wcfwpf-vs-2005-extensions.html) that work's for me:

    Simply run the installer from the command line with the following:

    msiexec /i vsextwfx.msi WRC_INSTALLED_OVERRIDE=1

    The key is one that doesn't currently exist in the registry. You have to add it yourself.

     

    They key was removed when installing sp1 so adding in that key again makes the installation believe .net 3 is installed and not .net 3 sp1
