VS 2015 project uses v4.6.2, VS asks to install it, installer says it is already installed, project does not load.


  • I click on VS Professional 2015 (Version 14.0.25431.01 Update 3) Solution.

    Several projects do not load.

    On 'Reload', I get a popup: "Project Target Framework Not Installed"

    Select the Radio Button: Download the target pack for .NETFramework, Version=v4.6.2

    Click OK.

    It brings up a Browser with URL: (Which just stays on ) (HUH?)

    I go find the installer for v 4.6.2, download and run and it says:

    "Your installation will not occur. See below...

    ".NET Framework 4.6.2 or a later update is already installed on this computer."

    I have already uninstalled and re-installed VS2015 (and restarted the computer as requested).

    I am stuck, please reply ASAP.
