  • Hi Mikael,

    I have Windows 8.1 any my version is 2.0.50727.4927

    You OS seems have installed this update: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2656373 then you have that .NET version.

    1. May I ask this question, have you update your OS to Windows 7 SP1?

    2. Please also use this tool to verify installed .NET 2.0 on your OS(.NET 3.5 can also be verified):

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx

    Based on Sync Framework 2.1 page http://www.microsoft.com/en-hk/download/details.aspx?id=23217

    It required .NET 2.0 SP1 or higher. .NET 3.5.1 version in my mind it is lower then .NET 3.5 RTM version number. So I recommend you update to Win 7 SP1 and check the result.

  • Hello

    I´m running SP1 on my Win7.

    I verified with the tool that I have .net 2.0 SP2 installed.

    But I found  a workaround

    When I am logged in as a local admin user I can install it but not as a admin domain user.

    I'm  a little worried since I will install this at a major global actor where I can not expect to be local admin

    regards

    Mikael

  • @Mikael,

    Then the issue may related to security setting of the two kind of products, what about try the following workarounds:

    At least .NET is actually not the reason of this issue.
