Windows 7

We have ran across one PC out of about 20 that when we have done a new install of Windows 7 (use to be XP machine) and then we try to run the .net framework 4.5 (as we have on all the other machines) it just sits there with the little green "status" circle moving round and round.   We never do get any error messages.

Ideas of what we might have missed doing?

Have you tried completely removing the .net framework install folder and reinstalling it?

Are you referring to the C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft.net?    If so, that folder is not showing on this machine.

If not, where do I find the folder you are talking about.

Ah it came with the windows 7 installation?
Hmm. Try restarting the machine and reinstalling it. Have you tried to install it more than once?

The machine was an XP machine that we did a new install of Windows 7.   So we then   downloaded the .net 4.5          

Will try the reboot.      And yes, we have tried it more than once.

Once my "helper" gets the reboot done, I will post back

Run the System File Checker to check Win 7 system files.
Run the command prompt (right click on it and select 'Run as Administrator').
Then run the following command:
SFC /SCANNOW

Download and run:

The restart worked.    Should have tried that first.    I always ask my users the same question.   Should take my own advise and do a restart to see what happens.  LOL
