Cannot install .NET Framework v2.0

  edenworkshops 15:51 04 Oct 2010


I should explain things briefly.

I was having problems with my new copy of Xsitepro, a web building software.

A suggestion in their knowledge base said that if different versions of .NET Framework were installed then conflicts could arise that would give the problem I was experiencing.

I had 3 different versions installed, so I uninstalled them all and downlaoded a new copy of .NET Framework V2.0

But when I try to run the .exe I get a window saying "Set up exe has encountered a problem and has to close"

Interestingly the problem I was having with Xsitepro also involved an error window which said much the same thing.


I am, thank you.


Corrupt download? try uninstalling and re-downloading.

"I had 3 different versions installed, so I uninstalled them all and downlaoded a new copy of .NET Framework V2.0".

Notwithstanding what Xsitepro say in their "knowledge base" ideally you need ALL versions of .net framework installed as different software will require different versions to run properly.

And that includes the recently released version 4.

I tried to re-install .NET Framnework from V1.0 intending to re-install them all.

But with V1.0 as with V.2.0 I get an error window
saying set up has encountered a problem and needs to close.

Thank you so much for your input.

Soprry, just rebooted and managed to install the NET Framework exe with no problem.

Problem solved.

Thank you all.
