Microsoft.Net Framework 3.5 Setup Error... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just purchased a brand new HP computer, which doesn't come preinstalled with Microsoft.Net Framework. So before I did anything, I found a download for the latest version, 3.5, and downloaded it. I run the file, load's my "instalation component's", I am prompted with the license agreement, I scroll through, check off accept and "Send information about my setup experience's to...", and click "Install" The bar fill's, meanwhile there is a little Information Tip that say's "Download Complete, you may now disconnect from the internet." , once the bar fill's it disapear's, and I am left with a white window, which has the word's "Setup Error" in the top left, and "Microsoft .net Framework" in the top right, it also give's me the option to click "Exit" in the bottom right. Did the Framework install? Or is there an issie occuring?

  • Please tell us what version of Windows you are using. Windows Vista and Windows 7 *do* come with the .NET Framework installed.

    I believe Vista came with .NET 2.0 and Windows 7 comes with .NET 3.5, so assuming your new computer came with Windows 7, you should already have v3.5.

    This article shows you how to check.

    You should also check Windows Features:  in Control Panel, search for Windows Features, then select Turn Windows Features On or Off. Look on the list for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 and make sure it is on.

    I suspect you saw "Setup Error" because the installer found .NET 3.5.1 already present.
