Will I mess up my lap top if I uninstall microsoft net 4 client profile so I can install net framework 1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Windows 7. A software I installed required me to install  Net Framework 1. The Software won't work. Researching, I read that Net framework 1 has to be installed before Net framwork 4. So I uninstalled the software plus the net framework 1. Plan was to then uninstall Net Frame 4,then reinstall Net frame 1, followed by reinstall Net frame 4. But I got a warning some applications might not work. What to do? Go ahead with uninstalls/reinstalls or leave 4 and go without the software? Thanks in advance. Ecnx

  • Hi Ecnx,

    Thanks for posting back.

    Since the .NET Framework 1.1 is published much earlier than the Windows 7, and Windows 7 does not support the .NET Framework version 1.1. Please see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff962563.aspx

    To install .NET Framework 1.1, you can perform the steps mentioned in the link of my last post. I've tried to install the two (.NET Framework 1.1, SP1) in my Windows 7 32bit system, and it can be successful installed. You can download them and try install in your computer.

    If the installation still fails, follow below steps to collect install log files:

    ·         Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%).

    ·         Install .NET Framework 1.1/SP1 again (with Administrator privilege).

    ·         Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder with the Log Collection Tool

    Collect tool: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e0da314f-6216-4a18-bc6b-7d29cf83af20&displaylang=en

    ·         Send the vslogs.cab file to me (E-mail: v-anwu@microsoft.com).

    Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

    Since your issue is caused by a software which needs .NET Framework 1.1, you can also consider contact the software publisher for how to install their software in a Windows 7 system.

    I hope this will help.

  • Hi ecnx,

    You Doesnt need framework 1.0 for installing 4.0.
    you can directly download Net framwork 4.0 and install on your system.
    The  link for .net framework 4.0 is:

  • Hi Ecnx,

    Welcome to the MSDN Froum.

    First, there is one thing I would like to clarify with you:

    • Do you need to install .NET Framework 1.0 or .NET Framework 1.1?
    • While uninstall .NET Framework 4.0, did you see the warning like below?

    As far as I know, the .NET Framework 1.0 is not supported on Windows 7. Please see: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/netfxsetup/thread/e61c812c-162c-4e78-85a1-17b79a8085ed. If your software really need to use .NET Framework 1.0, please contact the software publisher.

    If you need to install .NET Framework 1.1, you can perform the steps mentioned in the post below:
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/netfxsetup/thread/0a5b0e3f-4182-450f-b0e6-76d886584034

    About the warning you saw during uninstalling .NET Framework 4.0, I think you do not need to uninstall it -- just repair the .NET Framework 4.0 after install .NET Framework 1.1 to prevent some potential issues.

    A useful tool: .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx
    This tool is designed to automatically perform a set of steps to verify the installation state of one or more versions of the .NET Framework on a computer.

    If you have any concerns, please feel free free to let me know.

    Hello Andrew,

    Thanks for the reply.  It was Net Framework 1.1 that I uninstalled and the Net framework 4 warning is exactly the one you posted below. I read the forum you sent me to. It said to use the clean-up tool as a last resort.  I’d reinstalled the software which, this time, automatically installed Net Framwork 1.1 and then came up with error 1603. I uninstalled it as normal (keeping the tool as a last resort). However after that, when I went to download Net 1.1 from  link given in the form, the system requirements don’t include windows 7. (I’m using 32bit). So, I’m not sure what to do from here.

    Thanks
