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!!

QuickBooks does rely upon .NET Framework, but this issue may not be a QuickBooks issue.

Uninstall QuickBooks entirely from the computer and restart the computer.
Make sure the userid is a member of the administrators group.
Open cmd.exe and run SFC /SCANNOW . Allow to complete and restart.
Now see if you can repair or install .NET Framework 2.

Start there and let us know. ... Thinkpads_User

Thanks for your help.  I figured it out.  It was a .NET Framework problem.

1. Downloaded Aaron Stebner's .NET Framework cleanup tool

 http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx

2. Removed all versions of .NET Framework

3. Reboot

4. Download and install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

 http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=22

5. Add/Remove Programs, Quickbooks Repair


And that worked!!!  CRAZY!

for the following reason:

Completely removing . Net Framework is not so easy. There can sometimes be uninstall issues. &nbsp;Aaaron Stebner's removal tool did the trick so I could do a fresh install of .NET.<br /><br />QB uses .NET see article <a href="http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/articles/HOW12407" target="_blank">http://support.quickbooks.<wbr />intuit.com<wbr />/support/a<wbr />rticles/<wbr />HO<wbr />W12407</a><br /><br />It was a pain

Yes, of course.  I knew it was the .NET path, just had to figure out how to fix it.  Thanks!
