Download the .NET Framework 2.0 and install it. .NET Applications compile to CIL then into bytecode, and must be run by the virtual machine.

it is already installed along with .net 3.5 but I'll give it a shot. – Brad Nov 20 '09 at 17:21
can you provide us with the error? – John T Nov 20 '09 at 17:22
Okay I installed it and it works. I know the directory for .net 2 was there but maybe it was empty!. usually when you reinstall a framework it asks if you want to repair the prev didn't in this case, which leads me to belive that it wasn't really there. Thanks John T. – Brad Nov 20 '09 at 17:32
You're most welcome! – John T Nov 20 '09 at 17:33
