Problem setting up .NET 2.0 - missing patch? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Add and Remove programs claims that I already have .NET 2.0, but when I try to "repair" or uninstall it it complains that some patch or other is missing.  It also doesn't appear to be working at all.  Here are the answers to the questions in the blog post linked to from the sticky:

    1. Version of .NET Framework you are trying to install.  - 2.0
    2. Where did you get it (web page, path, application that redistributed the framework) - I think it came with Windows XP.
    3. Is this a pre-release, CTP or beta version? Which? (Beta#, CTP (Month Year), RC, etc) - No idea.
    4. What .NET Framework Patches do you currently have installed? - Add/Remove Programs claims there is a Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (KB928365)
    As mentioned above, this is in Windows XP.

    Can anyone help?

  • Windows XP does not ship with the .NET Framework. Can you give us more details on what appears to be not working?

    Have you tried running the .NET Framework 2.0 installer?

            If you want to repair .NET Framework 2.0 on your machine, I think you could at first clean up it and then re-install it again.   For .NET Framework cleanup, you could use this cleanup tool for help.   Then you could download .NET Framework 2.0 here and .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 here.
