uninstall and reinstall of .net problem


  • I have a vs2015 professional project that I needed to reference a Matlab .net assembly.

    Since the Matlab compiler only supports .net 4.0 I had to uninstall 4.5 4.6 and re install 4.0.

    I did this and the Matlab project built fine. Then I installed 4.6.2 .net. 

    Now my project won't load, and presumably other projects.

    How do I revert to the framework settings or dlls that will load my project. When I first opened the project it said that it was a 4.0 property

    No that is not correct at all and all those frameworks can be on the machine concurrently with each one selectable based on the .NET Framework the application is using.

    The message you are showing has nothing to do with your project and the version of the .NET Framework being used. You have some kind of user authentication problem, your authentication, in using Visual Team Services that VS is trying to access. Why you are trying to use Visual Studio Team Services if your machine is not part of a corporate domain that would be using such services is questionable.
