Fix .NET Framework To Fix Simply

I have a client that had an issue with Simply Accounting 2010 working. It would give an error on start-up about .NET Framework not working and the Simply Connection Manager failing. I believe the Connection Manager uses .NET. I could not uninstall Framework 3.5SP1 or reinstall. I found this on the Internet to allow me to remove .NET Frameworks and reinstall. Once I did this Simply worked.

After doing some research and many attempts and failures I was finally able to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

My research disclosed Windows XP SP3 blocks .NET security patches. This problem forces XP SP3 users to apply patches manually to complete vital updates. Since my OS is Win XP Home SP3 I had to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 manually.

Here’s the procedure I used:

• Step 1: Download Aaron Stebner’s .NET Framework cleanup tool. The .NET Framework cleanup tool is available for download at the following location:
http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.li … p_tool.zip
The download includes a Read Me file that explains how to use the cleanup tool.

• Step 2: From the Microsoft Download Center download .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package, .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86), and .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1.

• Step 3: Uninstall all existing versions of .NET Framework.

• Step 4: Run the .NET Framework cleanup tool. When the cleanup tool finishes it prompts for a computer restart.

• Step 5: Install .NET Framework Version 1.1 and .NET Framework Version 2.0 in that order.

• Step 6: Do a computer restart.

• Step 7: Install .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1. Be patient it takes awhile to install.

After this the following versions of .NET Framework were installed on my computer: 1.1, 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, and 3.5 SP1.

I then successfully installed Paint.NET. 3.36. Again be patient it takes awhile to install.
