  • Hi -

    Did you see this error when installing SyncToy 2.1 or when running SyncToy 2.1. You can find the Sync Framework 2.0 here -


    Either try installing this explicitly or try installing SyncToy 2.1. Please remember that you need admin rights to install Sync Framework 2.0 - though I think it does give a more accurate error code in that case.

  • I am sorry, I should have told you that I was trying to install  Microsoft SyncToy. The instructions said that the SyncToySetupPackage_v21_x64.exe file would install Microsoft Sync Framework also. The installation process early halted and gave the above error message.

  • Hi

    I've also got this error message when installing SyncToy 2.1.  So I followed the link in your message, selected SyncSDK-v2.0-x64-ENU.  When I installed this download, it also failed.  The error message reads "This installation package is not supported by your processor type".  I have a Dell™ OptiPlex™ GX260 with an Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz.  

    Have I selected an incorrect version?  Any suggestions on how to get SyncToy 2.1 installed would be appreciated.
