Error message when App is loading
Posted on 2006-06-13
When I run my app on MY computer with Visual Studio .Net 2005, it runs fine. (.Net 2005 is also what I programed my app in) BUT, when I run my app on another computer, I get an error message. This is the message:
To run this application, you first must install one of the versions of the .Net framwork:
Contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .Net Framwork.
It's a simple application. When the CD is put in, it autoruns a startup window that looks at the system they're using and sees if they have Adobe 7.0 viewer. If not, it installs it for them. (THIS IS WORKING FINE)
After that, the startup window has a link to run a viewer app that I made. (A completely differet .exe located on the CD) It's when I click on this link that the error comes up.
What is this error and how can make it stop without letting the user know. This app is going out to 30 people and they are very very computer dumb. I also won't know if they have this .Net framwork or not.
I'm using an XP machine with Service Pack 2 installed. Please help.
