I'm trying to install some software on a windows 2008 server which is unsupported by the software manf, but they have suggested we, do the following to get the software installed, trouble is I'm not sure where to do this, here goes..

"The pre-requisites are:
1/ .NET Framework 4.0 (or above) feature is enabled."

I know this is installed, how do I check it's enabled?

"2/ UNINSTALL Microsoft C++ 2008 redistributable x64"

Can't see where to do this? It's not in add/remove progs

"3/ You may need to remove previous versions of the .NET framework"

Can't see where to do this either

guidance appreciated

So if it's not supported on Server 2008, what is it supported on?
If you don't see the items in Programs and Features they are not installed on the system

Enabling .NET versions have to do with IIS and particular sites.  One site might use .NET 2 while another site in IIS might use .NET 4

Since you have this in the SBS zone...can we assume this is SBS 2008?

Hi,

sorry, I selected sbs by mistake - Where can we see the IIS settings?

On the server > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services Manager

So why not setup a Win 7 machine dedicated to running this software?

I don't have IIS in administrative tools?

I think I've sorted it by putting on Microsoft C++ 2008 redistributable x86, which was a requirement and was supposed to be packaged with the software.

Thanks for the replies

The software provider hinted that Microsoft C++ 2008 redistributable x86 should be installed but it was supposed to be packaged with the software, I installed it separately and the issue seemed to be gone.
