Microsoft user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it now a requirement that a Microsoft Office user needs to be a software engineer? - I've experienced a similar problem to many of the users on this site, with respect to:

    .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0), which suggests that the system could not find the file specified.

    and gives error code: 0x80070007

    it seems, however, that the user must trawl through a series of links and steps in order to identify a solution that requires various interactions with many file sources to rectify a problem that is created as a result of using Microsoft products as intended, legitimately.

    Is it not possible to supply the applications fit for purpose without the need waste such valuable time trying to manipulate software in an attempt to get it to "do what it says on the tin".

    Perhaps a fix should be provided to download and run, to resolve the problem without having to re-educate oneself as a software engineer.

  • Hi King Charlton,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Although the description of the issue may be the same, the cause of the issue is different and indefinite.

    Different configuration of computer and different operations by different people…... There are many factors lead to the issue, we couldn’t reproduce the issue.

    So what we could do is to provide more effective methods to help our users to troubleshoot the problem. Thank you for understanding.

    >>.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0), which suggests that the system could not find the file specified.

    To analysis the problem, we need more information about the issue, like what did you do when get the error and more description or screenshots. The more information we get, the solution we provided will be more specific.

    If you couldn’t find .net framework 3.5, try to use the .NET Framework setup verification tool:

    to verify and once it found any corrupted, you can use the .NET Framework Repair Tool: to repair it.

    If you're running Windows 7 or higher on your machine, .NET Framework 3.5 is shipped with it as one of OS component, windows 10 also ships with .net framework 3.5.

    Enable the .NET Framework 3.5 in Control Panel

    • Search Windows Features, and press Enter. This brings up the Turn Windows features on or off dialog box.
    • Select the .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) check box, press OK, and reboot your computer if prompted.

    If I misunderstand you, please feel free to tell me.

    Best regards,
