Visual Studio Publish error

Posted on 2008-11-04
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
When I publish my application from visual studio I get the error message and I don't know how/what to fix.  I have downloaded all of the updates.  This seems to effect the installation of the application because the installer fails because it can't find files.  The publish operation  works for other applications.

error msg:
The value of the 'PublicKey' attribute in '.NET Framework 2.0' does not match that of file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\Bootstrapper\Packages\dotnetfx\WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe'.
