Hi,
I have installed .Net app on a .net windows 2003 server. I was told that the machine had the .NET framework 1.1 already installed. However when i run the app i get the following error message.
COM object with CLSID {56FC8553-FACB-11D0-9336-0060979375D9} is either not valid or not registered.

I suspect the framework has not been installed properly because when i go to add/remove programs i cannot see >NET framework in the list.
However if i try to install FW 1.1  I get a msg saying it is already installed..
Cananyone tell me how i can uninstall FW 1.1 or suggest some other fix for the error msg above.
Thanks

That is a COM error, and not a .NET framework error.  Does your application have reference to a COM library.  That library needs to be registered on the server.

Is there a reason that you need to uninstall the .NET framework?
