    The issue can be caused by a damaged .NET Framework component. At this time,
    let us refer to the following steps to troubleshoot this issue:

    Step 1: Download Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp utility
    1. Visit:
    2. Save the file to your computer.
    3. Install this tool on your computer.

    Step 2: Remove .NET Framework
    1. Click Start -> (All) Programs->Windows Installer Clean Up.
    2. See if you can find .Net Framework software. If so, remove them.
    3. Restart the computer and see if the problem still exists.

    For more information, please refer to:
    Title: Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

    However, if you encounter a problem when trying to uninstall .NET Framework
    1.0, we can also refer to the following Knowledge Base Article to uninstall
    it manually.

    After that, please restart the computer and perform the following
    suggestions to reinstall .NET framework 1.0 and the updates for it.

    Step 3: Install .NET Framework 1.0 Redistributable Package and .Net
    Framework 1.0 SP3
    1. Please download the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable
    Package from the following link and save it to the C drive (C:\)

    Microsoft .NET Framework Redistributable 1.

    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 Service Pack

    Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.0 SP3, English

    2. When the File download window appears, please click the Save button, and
    once you have done that, follow the directions and Save it to Windows so you
    can download the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 setup file in your computer and
    double-click the .NET Framework file to manually install them one by one.

    I started doing what you said and then found out I do not have 1.0 installed.
    Only 1.1. Is that possible and is that the reason I am getting this message?

    I use a program that uses .NET and has problems with it often. I have had
    to call the tech support for that company recently and they had me uninstall
    all my .NET programs and then reinstall. I am guessing that I did not
    install 1.0 and only 1.1. If I have 1.1 is it necessary to have 1.0?
