My .NET Framework is pooched, is there a way to force an install? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Somehow my .NET framework got corrupted and I can't uninstall it or install over it.  Is there some way to force an install over-top of it to get it working again? Or force it's removal to allow me to reinstall it?

    I'm running under Windows 8.1.

    I tried to use the /NoVersionSetupCheck option on the installer, yet it still checks for a version. :(

  • Thanks Lana,

    I just got this now.  When you wrote this, I had been fighting with my work machine since the previous Thursday.  The entire computer crumbling due to the uninstall of MS VS Community failing.  I was very pissed off.  My solution was to dump an older image and work with that.

    Very disappointed with MS right now, but thanks for your attempt.  I'll won't be installing any MS products anytime in the near future.

  • Hi Adrian ,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Since your OS is win 8.1.

    Windows 8.1 includes .NET Framework 4.5 development platform by default.

    Firstly, If it is the .NET Framework 4.5 has crashed, you may need to use sfc /scannow command to see if there are any system errors and to repair missing or corrupted system files.

    Reference link about sfc/scannow command:

    Besides, If there are problems with other .NET Framework edition,

    I recommend you use .Net Framework setup verification tool to verify the installation state of one or more versions of the .NET Framework on your machine. 

    It will verify the presence of files, directories, registry keys and values for the .Net Framework.  It will also verify that simple applications that use the .NET Framework can be run correctly.

    Reference download link:

    if there is any issue on the .net framework, please use .Net Framework repair tool:
