GPMC and .NET Framework 2.0

Posted on 2006-04-13

Is there a way to install Microsoft Group Policy Management Console with Service Pack 1 (1.0.2) with .NET Framework 2.0 installed?  When I try to install it, I get an error that says, "Please install the Microsoft .NET Framwork before installing the Microsoft Group Policy Management Console with SP1."  I believe that the product is looking for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.x.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Jay Jay is correct.
    .NET Framework 2.0 and 1.x are seperate installs. 2.0 does NOT handle programs that requre 1.1 and so forth.
    Installing 1.1 should take care of it.
