unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application

    General discussion

  •  

    I have an application written using Visual studio 2005 (in VB.Net). When I run it on any machine I get "unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application” and this same application successfully some other PCs

     

    And these following processes I have already done:

    1. Repair and reinstall .net framework2.0
    2. I also rebuild my application setup.
    3. Scan my PC with antivirus and install new updated antivirus
    4. Change the machine.config
    5. Remove all dlls from my project so I ensure it no referential problem.
    6. I have format my pc and reinstall dotnet framwork2.0 and my project.

     

     

    So if any one has solution excluding the above then plz give me as soon as possible.

     

     

    Thanks in advance

  • I need to know whether the offending computer can run any .NET2.0 application. If it can't run any. NET2.0 applications, I recommend that you see this thread by my friend Chen Feng about how to handle this issue.

    To fix the this issue, please try the following steps:

    1.       Download the .NET Framework cleanup tool and choose to clean up the version of the .NET Framework that is causing problems on your system

    2.       Download and install the version of the .NET Framework that you cleaned up in step 1 (such as the .NET Framework 1.0, .NET Framework 1.1 or .NET Framework 2.0)

    3.       (optional) Download and run the .NET Framework verification tool to double-check that all .NET Framework files are correctly installed

    4.       Download and install the desired .NET Framework service pack (such as .NET Framework 1.0 SP3 or .NET Framework 1.1 SP1) by running the setup package directly instead of using Windows Update.  Running it directly will allow the service pack setup to display error dialogs instead of having Windows Update suppress them.

    For more details, please visit What to do if other .NET Framework setup troubleshooting steps do not help.
