    How to Uninstall/Reinstall .Net Framework?


    Hi all, I want to uninstall and then reinstall all Microsoft .Net Framework software. However when I go to Control Panel/Programs and Features I don't see any .Net Framework components listed. Thanks for any tips.

    Yes, I saw that, but turning it off is the same as uninstalling it? And turning it back on will reinstall?

    Are you looking for something like:
    The Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool detects frequently occurring issues that affect the Microsoft .NET Framework setup or updates. The tool tries to resolve those issues by applying known fixes or by repairing the corrupted installations of the supported .NET Framework versions. The tool has an easy-to-use wizard-based user interface (UI). It also supports command line usage together with more advance options.
    Before downloading read this at Aaron Stebner's WebLog at msdn(dot)com.

    Thanks, I'll take a look. I'm trying to resolve this issue, so I thought that a repair install might fix it.

    Personally I would trust Microsoft over a 3rd party software advisor. I've tried different ones but have gotten false readings for Microsoft products and JAVA too. I just let my software update itself, and Windows update itself.

    The different .NET software is installed(or turned on) as you need it, with the exception of .NET 3.5 after a clean install if you need it for a mobile broadband USB surf stick; then one can use this command in an admin command prompt, if you have Windows OS install media:
    DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:d:\sources\sxs
    Where the source marked in red must be the drive letter of the OS install media (USB or DVD)
