I can't use programs requiring .NET Framework 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't run this program called Guitar Hero Three Control Panel. Its sort of an add-on program for GH3 for the PC. It requires at least .NET Framework 2.0, which is included Vista. Vista is my OS. The program was working fine for a long time and then suddenly it just stopped working. At first I figured it was the program itself, but then the I talked to the programmer of the program and he helped me figure out it was my .NET Framework. I know that .NET is the program because in Event Viewer I have 12 crashes related to .NET Framework all with the same error message:

    ".NET Runtime Optimization Service (clr_optimization_v2.0.50727_32) - Service reached limit of transient errors. Will shut down. Last error returned from Service Manager: 0x80029c4a."

     

    And when it crashes a new process begins in Task Manger called "dw20.exe" and the description is something along the lines of "Microsoft .NET Framework Reporting Shim." So what can I do short of reinstalling/repairing the OS?

    Thank you for your post.

    To eliminate the possible cause of corrupted .NET Framework 2.0, you can try Verification Tool to verify .Net Framework 2.0 on your Windows Vista. If it cannot be verified on your computer, you can try to follow the steps mentioned in the following blog to repair the .NET Framework 2.0 on Windows Vista.
    See: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/03/26/how-to-repair-the-net-framework-2-0-and-3-0-on-windows-vista.aspx


    If it cannot be verified successfully and the steps don't work, we might need to do some reparation work of your OS.

    Firstly, I would suggest you to upgrade your Windows Vista to be "patched" up with the latest "fixes".

    If the above suggestion doesn't work, you might be required a machine to be restored or an in-place upgrade to be performed to recover it.
    For one quicker way to repair OS or restore the OS configuration to an earlier point.
    Here is a KB about this, please see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936212/

    Or if you have the original media, you can did a repair of Win7.


    If it can be verified successfully but the program still crashes, this means that your issue might be not related to .NET Framework. You should contact the support of Guitar Hero Three Control Panel program to get more useful help.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

  • I searched MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com) for ".NET Runtime Optimization Service (clr_optimization_v2.0.50727_32) - Service reached limit of transient errors. Will shut down. Last error returned from Service Manager: 0x80029c4a" and got 31 hits.

    Unfortunately, none of the articles seem to have a quick fix for you. In several of the threads, the error message you quoted was associated was associated with virus/malware infection, so you might want to make sure your AV and anti-malware software is up to date and do full syatem scans to see if anything appears.

  • Nothing appeared in the scans. Anything else you can think of?

     

    EDIT: I also just ran sfc /scannow and it said "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

  • All verions are verified. So you think its the program itself then?

  • Hi MementoMori34,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Since .NET Framework 2.0 has been verified successfully, this means that it is well installed on your machine.
    Thus, it would be related to the program.

    Could you please try to remove this program and reinstall it again? If it doesn't work, please contact the support of Guitar Hero Three Control Panel program to narrow down the cause of your concern.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

  • I've uninstalling/reinstalled multiple times and it never worked so I guess I'll have to talk to the programmer again. Thanks for your help.

  • Actually, YiChun Chen, I still think it is .NET for a few reasons. One, why is .NET Runtime Error Reporting Shim running when the program crashes? Also, when I try to start the .NET service, it begins to start the service then says it started then stopped and some services do that when not in use. What does this mean? What can I do?

  • Hi MementoMori34,

    Thank you for your reply.

    This forum is for the support of .NET Framework installation. I'm familiar with the installation. I can help you to eliminate the cause of corrupted .NET Framework 2.0 installation.
    Since it can be verified successfully, I would suspect that it might be not related to .NET Framework installation.

    For .NET Runtime Error Reporting service, here is my understanding:

    The program is based on .NET Framework 2.0.

    After it crashed, .NET Runtime Error Reporting service was invoked, analyzed the crash and showed the error message. That's why you noticed ".NET Runtime Error Reporting Shim running when the program crashes".

    This service occurs when there is any .NET related error. If the program works properly, the service will not be invoked. Even you manually start it, it will stop because it cannot find any .NET related error.

    Hope this helps!
