I've been given a laptop with XP Pro SP3 on it.  It has .Net Framework 1.1 installed and Visual Studio 2008.   I want to install .Net Framework 3.5.  I've downloaded en_.net_framework_3.5_x86.exe and en_.net_framework_3.5_service_pack_1_x86_x64_ia64.exe from the MSDN site.

I want to be sure of the next steps.  Should I uninstall .Net Framework 1.1 first and then install 3.5?  And then install SP 1?

No need to uninstall v 1.1 - just install v 3.5 and you will be fine.

I installed .net fs 3.5 sp1, and the installation completed successfully.  But in Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs, it's not listed.  I only see Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1.  I rebooted the machine, but still don't see 3.5.

You can check to see if it installed happily:

I checked the files and also checked the Registry and see that the installation was successful.  I also checked the log in the %temp% and the installation was successful.  But I also see in the Registry that 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 have been installed as well.  But none of these show in AddRemove programs.  So I can only think to unintall everything and start over, but don't know how to uninstall them since they don't appear in AddRemove Programs.

That is normal behaviour.  If is it visible under the right folder then it is installed.

Well Visual Studio doesn't recogize the .csproj file when opening a solution, so that seems to mean that the requisite .net frameworks are not in place, no?

No idea - I know nothing about Visual Studio.
