.net errors in windows... watch out...

just to let you all know, I found out today that the MS .Net Framework versions supersede each other even though windows update site will try to install them together. you should only run one of these at any given time. if you are running XP, .net has to be installed separate. Vista SP1 has .net 3.0 built in, and I've not been able to confirm Vista w/o SP1.

Example of issue: I have a Vista SP1 PC that has Quickbooks Pro 2007 installed. Quickbooks Pro 2007 requires .net 1.1 and the software will install it without your knowledge. If you uninstall it without removing Quickbooks, the next time you run the program it will reinstall .net 1.1... this causes instability in Vista... you could upgrade Quickbooks (more $$). I have the same problem in XP... I have a video driver that requires .net 2.0, yet I run Quickbooks on that PC as well... right back to the same issue.

just be aware of .net issues and crashes...

I have reason to believe at this point that this is an issue that I've had for the past few years... if you think about it, .net was beta in 2000, v1.0 in 2002... all the way up to v3.5 in 2006...

want to know how many you are running... go to control panel, add and remove programs and look on the list to see... beware that some programs may not run if you remove any .net(s) from your system. if you have more than one, start looking up the requirements of each installed program, then see what you should upgrade... good luck...

forgot a piece to the puzzle... I guess that's what I get when I post a 2am, lol...

well, the problem is that each of these .net(s) install to individual folders on the drive and have separate registry entries... it might have been fine if they updated on top of each other, but if you look on the drive and in the registry, they don't...

Wow didn't know this. My dad has had driver and software issues that came with his video card. The program kept coming up with an error and finally after looking it was a .Net error. Wrong version. So, he gets the new version and nothing, same thing. I finally just said uninstall everything and see what that did. Well he did all that but then he couldn't get the monitor set up right. I suggested maybe the card is bad. Well, I guess not know. I will forward the info to him.

Looks like I know the problem now.

this is truly a bunch of crap... after doing some more reading on .net I have found the best explaination on Wikipedia (these guys are too smart some times)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microso...Microsoft_.NET

Quote:
Applications running in a managed environment such as the Microsoft framework's CLR or Java's JVM tend to require more system resources than similar applications that access machine resources more directly
no wonder I'm running 4GB RAM to get by...

.net was created so programmers outside microsoft can tap into the core of windows without getting a peek up the skirt (so to say). seems to me that I remember MS making a pledge that .net was going to replace DLLs, but I could be wrong. anyway, as it turns out, there are no MS written programs that require .net, yet just about every algorithm-based program not written by MS requires it...

then to top it all off, .net is the only windows emulation that linux cannot run... if a program requires .net, it cannot run under any linux emulators... life just really sucks.

I think I'm going back to school again, just to learn linux programming so I can join those trying to bring microshaft down...
