SBS 2008: I need to update the accounts software on our server, but the update fails stating that I need to install .Net Framework 4.6
I downloaded version 4.62 but that wouldn't install stating that it was incompatible with the server operating system. I then found that I could still download version 4.6 So I installed .Net Framework 4.6 and at the end of the installation I got the message saying the installation was successful. Then I got a message saying that a reboot was required. So I allowed it to reboot. The accounts update still won't install. It still says that I need to install .Net Framework 4.6
I googled "How to check the Dot Net version". I found a site which said that I need to look at the following registry key:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP
This Key lists the different versions of Dot Net which are installed. 4.6 is not listed. it only shows versions up to 4.0. How can this be, when I successfully installed it and rebooted the server?
