.NERT Version 2 on Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Winows Seven.  Each time I boot, I get a windows message which says "Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 is required to continue.  This software is available for free download at   httq://www.microsoft.com/downloads/"  

    Same message also appears when I attempt to deploy LEXMARK Productivity Studio 5500-6600 Series.  This is my 3-in-1 printer.

    Howvevr, the software seems to load OK

    I have gone to the trouble of downloading what appears to be the distrbutable verion of the .NET program, only to be told that the underlying program does not work in a 64-bit system and closes down

    A dog's breakfast! 

    WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO SAY, PLEASE INCUDE METHODOLOGY TO GET RID OF THE WRETCHED MESSAGE  (sorry!   accidental upper case )

  • Hi El jefe del camino,

    Thank you for your post.

    For Windows 7, .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1 is shipped with it as one of OS component.
    For .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1, it includes .NET 2.0 with SP2 and .NET 3.0 with SP2 as prerequisite.
    This means, you have the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 plus a few post 3.5 SP1 bug fixes on Windows 7. They are OS components. We don't need to manually install it.

    Please use Verification Tool to verify .Net Framework 2.0. If .Net Framework 2.0 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 7.
    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 (also apply to Windows 7)

    Or you can try to repair OS. Here is a KB about this, please see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936212/

    Since .NET Framework 2.0 is installed as a part of the OS, the cause can be that OS is not well installed on your PC.
    If the issue is related to Windows 7 installation, I think the best consulting place should be Windows 7 Installation, Setup, and Deployment forums.

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

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen

  • Please search in Control Panel for "Windows features", and select Turn Windows Features On or Off.

    Scroll down the list for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 and make sure it is turned on.

    Windows 7 comes with .NET 3.5.1, which is an extension of .NET 2.0. So, you should already have .NET 2.0, 3.0 (andother extension of 2.0) and 3.5 installed.
