Hello,

I have a VB.Net program, which I wrote on my windows XP pc (all recent
updates installed), and I created a setup project for installing the
program.

Now I want to install that program on windows 7, but there I get a
message: .Net framework 3.5 needed. Unfortunately, the latest version of
the .Net framework is installed on the windows 7 pc.

Anyone has experience with this problem? Does anyone knows a solution?

Thanks in advance.

I think that for most people including me is to run the Windows Update first
when they have installed Windows 7.

Somehow this seems not to be done

.

Is your installer stating that .Net 3.5 is needed, or is it at the point
when you try running your application?

If this installer was built for a VS 2003 project, then it likely included
..Net 1.1 in the setup. It isn't clear to me whether .Net 1.1 can be
installed on Windows 7, but I don't have Windows 7 to even try. I would
suggest you try that manually by downloading the redistributable from MS and
running it.
