  • The two pieces you have, .NET 4 Client Profile and .NET 4 Extended, are the complete .NET Framework 4.0.

    Therefore, there is nothing else to install.

    You can check the integrity of your .NET 4.0 with this tool:

    Please run the tool with .NET 4.0 selected, then check the last few lines of the tool log for the test app return code. Return code = 0 indicates your .NET 4.0 is fine. If the return code is not 0, then you can try to repair your .NET 4.0. If repair does not help, then you will need to uninstall .NET 4.0, then reinstall.
