Unable to install SyncToy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Component Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services has failed to install with the following error message:
    "A fatal error occurred during the installation of Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services."

    I just completed a clean install of Windows 7 Professional & am now re-installing all my programs I originally had with Windows Vista.  I'm now unable to install SyncToy 2.1 on my computer.  The error message is:

    The following components were successfully installed:
    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components

    The following components failed to install:
    - Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services

    I checked my computer to see what is installed using a program called "DetectDotnet".  It said I have "Microsoft .net framework 2.0 SP1" installed.  But never the less I tried to reinstall it anyway and came up with the error:

    You must use "Turn features on or off" in the Control Panel to install or configure Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 SP1.

    In the "Turn features on or off"  . . I found Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1 but not Version 2.0 SP1.

    What do I need to do to install "SyncToy" . . I'm at a lost.
