Thank you for your response.
I am running Vista Home Premium SP1
Turion X2 processor
HP TX2500 notebook (tablet)
3 GB RAM
I did try to use several different way to uninstall, each time both the
standard installer, clean up utility and the other uninstall net framework
utility reported that the netframework was uninstalled.
When I try to reinstall:
ver 1.0 not supported
2.0 not installed
2.1 wants xp sp2
3.0 will not install so sp1 also will not.
3.5 installed without error
3.5 sp1 installed without error but using the small bat utility to look at
what is installed constantly got the error that 2.0 sp1 and 3.0sp1 not
Tried this many times including trying to do this using Vista clean boot,
none worked. Did see a comment about visual studio requiring netframework
and some found by installing it solved their problem, so I downloaded and
installed MS Visual Basic express edition,
registered the product and now netframework appears to be installed as my
OpenOffice 3 now works. The issue stared with OpenOffice failing to install
and then when finally installed failing to initialize with an error
indicating netframework was not installed correctly.
Not really sure why it worked with using visual studio, but it work now.
Thanks again for your help.
