  • Hi snapcallem,

    Welcome to MSDN forum!

     

    I should clarify with you in order to narrow down this issue.

    1, what is your OS?

    2, which version of framework 4 have you installed?

     

    Based on your description and your follow-up, it seems that it might be caused by installing .NET Framework 4. I downloaded OTA SimpleRoot and ran OTA SimpleRoot.exe well on my machine. My machine is Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4.

    In OTA SimpleRoot.exe.config file:

    <startup><supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/></startup>

     

    This application should be run in .NET Framework 4.

     

    I would recommend some information and steps to you, you could refer its.

    1, you could download Verification tool, which will verify the presence of files, directories, registry keys and values for the .NET Framework. The download link is as follows.

    2, if it verified failure, you could uninstall your Framework 4 via Control Panel.

    Before you prepare to install .NET Framework 4, you could refer the following steps.

    1, you could download ‘Collect.exe’ Tool, which could help you to collect information during installing products. The following link is: http://go.microsoft.com/?LinkId=8967043

    How to use this tool

    2, you could download .NET Framework from the following link

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0a391abd-25c1-4fc0-919f-b21f31ab88b7&displaylang=en

    3, Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")

    4, unable your anti-virus software and some security software

    5, run .NET Framework as administrator

    6, re-install Microsoft .NET Framework again

    It will create a file named %temp%\vslogs.cab on your system.

    If it does not work, you could refer your log files to narrow down your issue.

    Or you could send your log files to me. (My E-Mail: v-xugong@microsoft.com)

    Look forward for your good news!

  • So this issue is not related to WF 4, right? It's an issue related to .NET framework setup. Move the question to proper forum. Thanks.
