This has been discussed before. Because of that I won't go over the long story but skip to what I do.
1. Go get the .NET removal tool and remove .NET 2.0 LINK ONLY:
2. I then reboot and then install the latest .NET that I need. If the install fails I look at the security software of said PC and consider removal of that too. If that fails I remind myself to use an ADMIN account and scan for malware.
I recently had to restore my computer after a major failure.
I had backed up everything using Carbonite so I was able to successfully recover all of my files and photgraphs, etc.
My problem is that when trying to download a photogarphic program my camera uses, Canon specifically their program informed me that I need to have Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework installed. I accepted.
DOTNETFX.exe began. I clicked yes and the program attempted to download I received a failure message which read;
Error 25015,. Failed to install assembly. 'C\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibilty.dll'
because of system error: 0x80131107
If it helps my computer has Windows XP Service Pack 3.
Additionally I see that in my programs files I have
.NET Framework 1.1, .NET Framework 2.0, .NET Framework 4 Client Profile and .NET Framework 4 Extended installed!
Could this be the problem?
Please help as I can't use a number of visual oriented programs I used to be able to run.
Thank you for your help
