.NET Registry Errors

EtherougeEtherouge Candler, NCPosts: 514Member

I get this when launching certain games.

I've tried everything a Google search offers: manual regedit, repair, uninstall/clean/reinstall/ (all versions), restore registry, Windows Update, etc. I don't know what to do. It says to set the registry key "HKLMSoftwareMicrosoft.NetFrameworkInstallRoot" to point to the .NET Framework installation ... but there is no InstallRoot. See this. I would have assumed all the reinstallations I did would have restored any missing keys, but I guess not.

    C:WindowsMicrosoft.NET  maybe?

    Else uninstall .NET4 then re-install it. Sounds liek an installation error.

    Format and reinstall Windows -   Problem solved.

     

    or

     

    Keep polling forums, reading various threads, trying different things,  until ... either something fixes it, or nothing fixes it.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    That's where the registry key needs to point to, but the key itself is gone.

    And I'm not going to format my 1TB HDD because of a registry error. But thanks I guess.

    Wasn't trying to be rude with that post btw. It is just a far simpler resolution. Whatever your choice, best of luck.

    No problem. Only a couple games are affected by this, so I'd rather just leave it as is.

    However, I cannot I run AMD's CCC program or *gasp* MTGO. Dire news, ideed.

    I have no patience for Windows registry issues so that's what I usually do.  In the time it takes to research the problem and find a solution that works ( if ever) I could reinstall everything.

    You could try the following:

    1: Uninstall .NET Framework, if you have multiple versions installed on your computer all of the versions

    2: Restart your computer

    3: Delete the whole .NET Framework folder from your registry

    4: Delete folder c:WindowsMicrosoft.NET if the folder still exists

    5: Run some program that repairs registry errors, CCleaner is a good free one if you don't have

    6: Restart your computer again

    7: Download  the installer from Microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851

    8: Disable your Firewall and Antivirus software

    9: Run the installer program

    10: Don't forget to turn your Firewall and Antivirus back on after you're done

    However, I think it would be better just to do a clean re-install for whole Windows. If you've already tried a lot of things, and nothing worked, re-installing Windows is often a good option.

    If you have manually edited any of Window's environment variables then ignore all my previous advice and first set them back to what they were.
