which OS and its version 32 Bit or 64 Bit

do you have Windows Installer 3.1 or later

windows installer version:
my favorite: go to start=>run and type msiexec
but you can also try:

thus now if xp has servicepack 3, go here and download client profile again:

if xp does not have servicepack 3, install it before - better use windows update, but if you can not, you can download it from

Hi, still no luck.
I installed the client profile again and verified the xp sp3 is installed.
still under the path:
"C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\ "
I get only v3 and v3.5.
and the path "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319" does exist.
under my app.config the definition is
  <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/>

so I assume I can be sure that my deployed app is actually using the v4.0 and not an earlier version-right?..

1)right click on your project and serach for properties ->building->advanced to see waht framework you're really targetting.

2) aside -quite sure it is not your case - , a known issue is: if path is too long (over 250 chars) you will have matter installing

Thank you everybody. problem is solved. I decided to install the full version(dotNetFx40_Full_setup.exe ) instead of dotNetFx40_Client_setup and it works.
