.Net Framework Initialization Error!

by JasonDiv11 / March 1, 2011 2:27 AM PST

Hi All.

I have a problem with my .Net framework initialization.
For nearly all new programs, and some old, it tells me that there is an initialization error, and that it cannot find the runtime for this application.
Please, as I am unexperienced in .Net etc, but am experienced at general computer issues, please post any help you can think of, in a clear and concise format.

Thank you ever so much in advance!
Jason Happy

try a fresh install, so like you said uninstall using your software manager then reboot your computer and install the latest version of .NET framework.

(NT) As there are .NET 1, 2, 3, 3.5 and 4.0, which does this app require?
