Problem: Quickbooks Pro 2009 would not launch on WXP Pro PC all of a sudden.
Attempted the following:
1. Followed these instructions which told me to uninstall .NET Framework 2.0 and reinstall. It would not repair or uninstall: http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/Articles/SLN40933
2. Ran clwireg tool. Completed successfully.
3. Ran dot net clean up tool from: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx
4. Rebooted machine
5. Attempted reinstall. Received the following error:
Error 25007. Error Occurred while initializing fusion. Setup could not load fusion with LoadLibraryShim(). Error: 0x80131700
So now, I don't have .NET Framework 2.0 AND Quickbooks 2009 Pro doesn't work along with every other application that requires .NET FW2.0!!
