Can't install Songsmith because of Net 3.0 Framework (which includes WPF) RRS feed

  • I am using Vista with Net 3.0 Framework. (Also 3.5 and 4.0) 

    I tried all repairs and other suggestions from forums.

    But it didn't help.

  • I just found out about Songsmith so I have not installed it yet. But I do have an idea. Have you checked the Event Viewer to find specific errors? I found this while looking for a version of WPF that could be installed aside from all unnecessary parts of .NET since you have it already. http://windowsclient.net/WPF/ and http://windowsclient.net/downloads/. If that doesnt work, at least you will have another source using those sites to help solve your issue.

    Good luck.

  • I'm having the same problem on Vista Basic SP2.  I had .NET 1.5, 3.5 and even installed 4 and still got the error.  I finally removed all versions and attempted to install 3.0 from the link that Songsmith creates.  However, the installer stops and says I must use the programs and features in control panel to configure it.  I go into programs and features in control panel and check all boxes under .NET 3.0 and still Songsmith says I need .NET 3.0.
