How to determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed and
whether service packs have been applied
IF no there are no higher versions than .NET Framework 2.0 installed,
suggest that you apply Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2:
Then install the application compatibility update for .NET Framework 2.0
Scroll to the bottom of the above page and click the Download button
next to NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe
*Save* both downloads when prompted to either run or *save* them.
When the downloads are completed, close *all* open programs and browsers.
Apply .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 first (NetFx20SP2_x86.exe), restart if
Then install NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe, reboot if prompted to.
If either do not install properly, then see:
Where to find .NET Framework 2.0 SP1, 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP1, 3.0 SP2, 3.5 and
3.5 SP1 setup log files
You can also run the .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool to check the
..NET Framework that was *included* in MCE and subsequent .NET Frameworks
that were installed:

If there are still issues installing either the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2
or the application compatibility update (NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe), you
can contact Aaron from here:
