I'm trying to install a program and getting message:

This setup requires the .NET Framework version 2.0.50727. Please install the .NET Framework and run this setup again. The .NET Framework can be obtained from the web. Would you like to do that?

Previously I've installed Visual Studio 2005 which comes with required version of .NET Framework. In registry, I have SP set to 2 in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v2.0.50727

Any help would be appreciated!

Try running Process Monitor while attempting to install. That tool should give you information which registry keys and which files are checked. My guess is that installation program checks for non-existant registry key. When Process Monitor tells you which read fails, just create that key and you should be fine.

Thank you for the Process Monitor. I'll give it a try. –  šljaker Jul 21 '10 at 9:27

I've installed .net framework 1.1 redistributable package and it worked.
Very strange.

Sometimes I wonder about the seriousness of MS developers. I feel trolled every now and then. –  Camilo Martin Feb 2 '12 at 22:45

There is at least on service pack for .NET 2, ensure you have this installed (should be offered in Windows Update).

I've installed VS2005 SP1 and VS2005 for Windows 7 but I still can't get installer to work. I don't see any other .NET 2 related updates in the Windows Update. –  šljaker Jul 21 '10 at 9:08
