which OS and its version 32 Bit or 64 Bit

do you have Windows Installer 3.1 or later

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.
