  • Hi Whiston,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     

    From the message, it means you should have .NET Framework 2.0 or higher installed on your machine.

     

    Could you please let me know your OS and Service Pack level?

     

    For Windows Vista and Windows 7, the .NET Framework 2.0 is embedded in OS, which means you are not required to install it. You can try to enable them by this way: Click Start>>Control Panel>>Uninstall a program>>Turn Windows features on or off>> Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1>> Expand that node and ensure all sub features are active. If you encounter any error during the activation, it means some system files in your machine are corrupt. In this scenario, I recommend you try to repair or reinstall OS.

     

    For Windows XP, you are required to update to Service Pack 2 so as to install .NET Framework 2.0.

    For Windows 2000, Service Pack 3 is required for installing .NET framework 2.0.

    For Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows Server 2003, you can install it directly.

    You can download it(x86) from: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=19

    For X64 from: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=6523

     

    Before you begin to install it, clean up %temp% folder and complete all Windows updates. Also make sure all antivirus and antispyware are turned off during the installation. Then try to run it under administrator.

     

    If you failed to install it, please collect the log by this tool: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/heaths/archive/2008/05/09/visual-studio-and-net-log-collection-utility.aspx

    After you run it, please upload it to an open website or send it to me (v-alsun_at_microsoft_dot_com).

     

    If you have any other concerns, please feel free to let me know.

  • Which Windows version are you using? If you're using a Windows version starting from Windows Vista, the .NET Framework 3.0 (at least) is included in the operating system installation.
    Otherwise you can download and install the .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributables from the following web addresses

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=19 (x86 version)
    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=6523 (x64 version)

    Bye.
