"Turn Windows Features on or off" when installing .NET 3.5 SP1?

"Turn Windows Features on or off" when installing .NET 3.5 SP1?

I am trying to install a program on my Windows 7 machine and it says that I need to have .NET 2.0 or later installed. Since Windows 7 comes with .NET pre-installed, I called support and they told me to just re-install .NET since my .NET install is probably corrupted. The program I am trying to install is SNGWiz. I do not think its installer is borked.

no i am with the origional poster, even just switching it on doesnt help, try and update the .net framework with it on or off gives no difference, try to install the software after switching it on achieves nothing to, this is a major flaw in the system,

"Is .NET 4.0 already installed? This might be a problem for their installer?

The registry version key changed with 4.0, and depending how they check for .NET this might break their installer - it did for us, and the message you get is one that we saw too.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\<...>\<Version>"
