I've been working remotely with my 85 year old Grandfather to resolve a .net framework 2.0 installation issue on Windows XP. Net Framework 2.0 was corrupted after he contacted Kodak tech support seeking help installing his Kodak AIO printer. Kodak wasn't able to resolve the printer driver/software issue and also corrupted .net framework 2.0 in the process. Now not only is he unable to print AVG Antivirus refuses to run without .net framework 2.0! Thanks Kodak for all your help!
While installing .net framework 2.0 this error occurs:
Error 25007. Error occured while initializing fusion. Setup could not load fusion with LoadLibraryShim(). Error: 0x80131700.
Resolution steps taken thus far:
1. First I found the following script (see code snippet), ran it on the local system without errors and tried re-installing Net Framework 2.0. same error as above
2. Next I tried repairing the .net framework install as suggested in MS KB article 908077: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908077
Same error as above when installing .net framework 2.0
3. Lastly I tried just deleting the %windir%\winsxs\policies folder and reinstalling .net framework 2.0. Once again the same error occurs as mentioned above.
I'm really at a loss here about what to do next. I hate to have to reload the OS for what seems like such a small issue.
As Always, Thanks For Helping!
