Thoughts about setup and deployment issues, WiX, XNA, the .NET Framework and Visual Studio

I have posted an updated version of the .NET Framework cleanup tool that now contains support for automatically cleaning up the .NET Framework 1.0, the .NET Framework 1.1, the .NET Framework 2.0, the .NET Framework 3.0 and the .NET Framework 3.5.
This tool automates the manual cleanup steps for the .NET Framework 2.0 that I posted a while ago. These steps have helped solve most of the known .NET Framework 2.0 beta uninstall issues that I know of. In addition, the tool can be useful to return your system to a known (relatively clean) state in case you run into any .NET Framework 2.0 installation failures so that you can try to install again.
The updated version of the cleanup tool contains options to clean up the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 separately and all versions simultaneously in a single step. The cleanup tool contains logic so that if it is run on an OS version that includes the .NET Framework as an OS component, it will not offer the option to clean it up. This means that running the cleanup tool on Windows XP Media Center Edition or Tablet PC Edition will not offer the option to clean up the .NET Framework 1.0, running it on Windows Server 2003 will not offer the option to clean up the .NET Framework 1.1 and running it on Windows Vista will not offer the option to clean up the .NET Framework 2.0 or the .NET Framework 3.0.
There are a couple of very important caveats that you should read before using this tool to cleanup .NET Framework bits on your machine:
I have been using this tool for a while, and it has proven reliable, but there may still be bugs in it in certain scenarios. Please contact me if you run into any issues while using the cleanup tool or if you are still unable to install the .NET Framework (or any service packs or hotfixes) after running it.
The tool has a command line switch that allows it to be run in silent mode if needed. There is more information about how to run it in silent mode in the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool User's Guide.
<update date="8/22/2007"> Added information about removing the .NET Framework 3.0 because the tool now supports this version of the .NET Framework in addition to 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. </update>

Good day Aaron,
Just so there is no misconception about my knowledge of this subject. Zero would be an appropriate description. My problems with .Net 2.0 started with getting my Kodak 5100 printer to work! It uses .Net 2.0. This is when I discovered that despite having the following versions of .Net framework installed:
It will not work,stating that I do not have the proper .Net Framework 2.0 installed, even though I apparently do.
For years I have downloaded all updates for Windows and honestly, have never had a problem with any of them,until now.
I hope you are the many other readers/viewers can assist me with advice on how to proceed.
Hi Jamest1945 - It sounds like there is some kind of problem with the detection logic being used by this printer software - likely, whatever file or registry key it is looking for to determine whether or not the .NET Framework 2.0 is installed on your system is missing.
I don't know exactly what that printer software is using to do this detection, so the best route here is probably going to be to try to repair/re-install the .NET Framework 2.0 to see if it can put back whatever file/registry is missing that the printer software is looking for.
What OS are you running? If it is a version of Windows before Vista, then you should be able to just repair the .NET Framework 2.0 using the entry in Add/Remove Programs. If that doesn't work, then you can try the manual removal and re-install steps at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2008/03/07/8108332.aspx.
If you are running Windows Vista, the .NET Framework 2.0 is installed as an OS component and it will not appear in Add/Remove Programs because of that. For that OS, you will likely need to repair/re-install Windows to fully repair the .NET Framework 2.0.
Hopefully this helps!
I posted a reply previously,I must have did it on another page. Anyway, I followed all the steps you gave me and in the order you said.
I reinstalled .Net Framework 2.0 successfully. I also reinstalled my Kodak software and it works exactly as it should. Hooray. I also forwarded a message to the Kodak support person so they would know what to do.
Virtually all the people I corresponded with said that they also encountered problems like I had and were proceeding to investigate the course of action I took
Many thanks Aaron

I spent 3 days on the phone with Intuit and Autodesk because QuickBooks and AutoCAD would not open after foolishly allowing MS to download Framework 2.0 SP1. Your tool solved all problems in about a minute. You are truly a great person!!
