this comes up with an error that framework core is already installed.
i have had a look through add/remove programs to see if there was a way to remove it so that i could reinstall But no luck.
any assistance appreciated. it is worth noteing that i did disable a lot of services a while back as they are not required for my application that i am running on this so i was wondering if maybe i disabled a dependancy.
