Over the past week or so, I’ve posted updated versions of both the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool and the .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool. The primary reason for the updates is to address some specific problems using the tools on Windows 7. I also fixed a few other issues that customers reported to me or that I discovered in my own testing.
Here is a list of the changes made to each of the tools:
.NET Framework Cleanup Tool changes (July 24, 2009):
.NET Framework Setup Verification Tool changes (July 17, 2009)
User’s Guides and Download Links
Here are links to the user’s guides for each of the tools – there are links in each user’s guide that can be used to download the latest version of each tool:
As always, please let me know (by posting a comment on one of my blog posts or sending me an email) if you run into any issues or have any questions using either of these tools.
keep getting "mscorwks.dll is either not designed" in windows 7 after clean up. tried reinstalling .net 4.0. any ideas
Hi G.Kumarappan - I'd suggest trying the steps listed at blogs.msdn.com/.../10110053.aspx to try to repair the .NET Framework components that are installed as a part of Windows.
My pc came with vista and shortly after went to 7 professional yrs ago. Recently, I've been receiving an error code 80070005 when trying to install updates. I'm also unable to troubleshoot anything. At the same time I noticed that on my desktop states I don't have genuine windows. I've tried so many things after reading others are having similar or same problems. Please help.
Hi Vicki - The following links might help in this scenario:
If those don't help, then I'd suggest posting a question on one of the Windows 7 forums and hopefully someone there can help suggest some other ideas for you to try.
