We have .net  framework 2.0 and 3.0 install on a server.  They appear to be corrupt and we would like to uninstall them and install ,net framework 3.5 SP1.  But they will not uninstall.  When we attempt to uninstall them from add remove programs we get a message that they cannot be uninstalled because it will affect other programs.

We have attempted to install . net framework 3.5 sp1 but when it comes up to the first part of the installation  the only options are to repair or uninstall.

The server that we are using is running microsoft server 2003 R2 64 bit os.

Thanks for you help.

Have you tried electing "repair" when you attempt to install .NET 3.5?

.NET v3.5 includes the v2.0 runtime and the v3.0 enhancements, so doing a repair on v3.5 would also repair the components that make up these lower versions.

We found a tool that removed the corrupt version of .net framework 2.0 and then we were able to reinstall it.
