    Hi Vivek

     

    What .NET Framework version are you trying to install on your machine? Vista already has .NET Framework 3.0 as an OS component in it. So if you are trying to install a version lower than .NET Framework 3.5, you will see this message. All you would need to do in this case would be to goto Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off -> Check the box next to Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0.

     

    Thanks

  • I am having the same problem.  I need to reinstall a version of .net framework and everytime I launch the app I am stopped with the "You must turn windows features on or off in the control panel to install or configure .net framework" message.  I switched it off but I need to reinstall it, is there a way to do this manually?  Thanks for any help you can provide!

  • All these people posting messages about having "the same problem" keep in mind that some OS versions like Vista, Server 2008 and Windows 7 already contain some version of the .NET FW. Because the .NET FW on these systems is part of the OS (just like kernel32.dll) they sometimes appear only in service pack updates. For example, .NET 3.5 redist download does *not* list Windows 7 in the list of Supported Operating systems.

  • Vivek,

    Go to the turn windows features on or off. If you can't find it right away, go into "C:" and search for it from there (local disk).

    You require permission from TrustedInstaller to make changes to this folder"

    Ah yes the dredded "TrustedInstaller". This is a generic user which is given total Administrative rights for the installation of your operating system at the time it was built by the manufacturer. I have seen this TrustedInstaller user on HP, Dell and standard Windows installs. The way to get around that is to take ownership of your hard drive and give those rights to you, using your current username. This is done by using the security tab in in My Computer. Open My Computer, "right click" on the drive "C" or whatever drive has your operating system on it. Left click properties, there will be seven (7) tabs that open up in a box. Go to the tab that has "Security" on it by left clicking it and brining it to the front, then "Advanced" near the lower right corner of this window. Click on the tab that has "Owner", click on the button that has "edit". This will open a box that should have Administrators and your username in it. Click on your username and it will be come highlighted, then make sure to click in the check box below it "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects:, then click ok. You will probably get two errors, about "pagefile.sys" and another file name of somekind. Just click ok to those and it will change ownership of the drive to your account and that should give you sufficient rights to complete the installation.

    Even after "Turning on or off windows features" through control panel, it continue giving the same error.

    Solution is that :  Open Control panel >>Program(Uninstall a progaram )>>then click at Turn window feature on or off>>uncheck dot net framwork 3.5..... 

    then reinstall .
