.net continues to reinstall over and over again in visual studio 11 RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I recently published an application from visual studio 11 which uses .net 4.5.  Every time I try to run the setup file it downloads and installs .net framework 4.5 again and after reboot it just starts installing it again.  Happens no matter how many times I reboot. Any ideas?

  • I just switched back to VS2010 and republished program with .net 4.0.  Solved problem.  Might be a bug with VS11 .. idk.
