We are trying to install a proprietary 32 bit program in Panasonic laptop running Windows 7 professional - 64bit. The program has been installed in many similar setups without any problems. The program runs as a service and requires dotnet v2.0 .
The install works fine but the service will not start and throws up an error 1053.
We have tried running the service under a Local System account, Administrator account and have created a new account with administrator rights.
We have tried uninstalling the program, rebooting and reinstalling it.
We believe it is a dotnet problem
We have tried running a dotnet v4.5.1 repair.
All to no avail.
The user interface loads with no problem.
