Cannot reinstall .NET 4.5.1 on Win 8.1 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I had a problem with Net 4.5.1  and trying to use Syndication in VS 2012, so I deleted all parts of it with the intent to restore
    it from Microsoft download, but
    I keep getting the message "The .NET Framework 4.5 and this update are already
    installed on your computer. Installation will not take place."
    Further, I tried to "Modify" the
    registry key 378675 so installation would not see it but get "modification is not allowed."<o:p></o:p>

    I am using Win 8.1 (from download) but only have the DVD for 8.0<o:p></o:p>

    Please Help<o:p></o:p>

    I read the recommendation in .NET 4.5.1 App in Visual Studio 2012 not Working

    "Looks like you are trying to install .NET 4.5.1 instead of the .NET 4.5.1 targeting pack. " and recovered everything. Many  thx.
