    Help !

    I made the mistake ages back of installing Microsoft .Net Framework SDK Beta v1.0.2204.

    Since then, it doesn't run 'coz it was a Beta. Plus I can't upgrade it / install a fresh .Net Framework Redistributable / SDK since the fresh installer program detects the presence of this earlier Beta. The Uninstall Icon is disabled when I try to remove the Beta from 'Add/Remove Programs'.

    There are programs I need to run that work only on .Net Framework, and I need to install it pronto.

    I even tried renaming the folder in Windows directory, but it still senses the Beta. Then I got fed up and deleted the folders containing the framework. Still no use. Then I even went through the entire registry and removed everything that mentioned ".net" !

    Still keeps detecting the beta.

    Can anyone help me please ?

    Regards,

    Nilay

    First of all, try to uninstall all existing versions of the sdk. After you
    did that, open your registry and delete the following (if they exist)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    \{C9913503-1500-4454-94CD-365ADC1BB9B9}

    Restart, and install the Framework.
