  • Hi Griffman14,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    To change the compatibility mode take the following steps:

    1. Right click on setup.exe and click Properties
    2. Switch to the Compatibility tab
    3. Untick the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" checkbox
    4. If you have a button at the bottom of the dialog entitled "Show settings for all users" click this and repeat step 3 in this window.
    5. Click OK until you have dismissed all dialog windows

    Besides,  I suggest you use .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool to check if the .NET Framework is ok.

    If you find there is anything wrong with .NET Framework, you may use Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool to do a repair,

    This tool detects and tries to fix some frequently occurring issues with the setup of Microsoft .NET Framework or with updates to the Microsoft .NET Framework.
