Problem with .NET Framework

By brifd1 ·
Here's where I'm at now on these 2 dialog windows...

One of the dialog boxes is headed by:

FAUpdateClient.exe - .NET Framework Initialization Error

with this inside:

X Unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application.
The other is headed by:

sprtcmd.exe - .NET Framework Initialization Error

X Unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application.

Two possible solutions...

1. Uninstall the last update to .NET Framework, fromyour post that would be version 4. Then reinstall, making sure the correct version for your Windows 7 is installed (32 bit or 64 bit)
2. System Restore to previous state prior to error messages. May have to reboot to Safe Mode without antivirus running (Norton comes to mind as being obtrusive), then run System Restore, and reboot.

Getting the .NET framework going is like

trying to get an old car to start, after it has been sitting for thirty years.

While I've been caught in 'dependency ****' while trying to compile UNIX programs, Windows .NET dependency **** is just as bad, with a prettier interface but less useful error messages.

Dell support (and others).

That is what the file is for. If the problem isn't dotnet itself, it may be a problem with the Dell support software installation, or an issue where initialization is blocked due to security software or an update to dotnet. So you may need to see if an update exists for the Dell software.
