Microsoft .NET Framework Doesn't Work RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have installed the .NET Framework 4 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. When I try to run a program that uses it, it says,

    "To run this application, you first must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework: 4.0.30319. Contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET Framework."

    I have used the .NET verification tool and It says it is verified. I also have gone into 


    I see a folder called v4.0.30319. Please Help!

    EDIT: I have tried re-installing, uninstalling, and repair it. It still doesn't work.

  • It one program that does not recognize your .NET Framework 4.0, or multiple programs?

    What is the program that throws the error you quoted?

    Have you, by any chance, installed any of the beta or RC offerings for Visual Studio 2012 or .NET Framework 4.5?
