Fix for Microsoft .NET Framework


If you are having a problem with Microsoft .NET Framework and you don’t know what to do, in this article we will show you how to fix the problem. Microsoft .NET Framework has been around for a while, and a lot of programs use it to run properly. So, if you have some issues, it can cause a lot of problems. Let’s take a look at how we can fix this by using some simple tools.

First of all we need to validate and verify the files. There is a program that gives you a verification of the files. You can download it from here:

Once it is downloaded, open up this program and select the product to verify. In our case it is .NET Framework 4.5.1. Now click on Verify Now.

It will validate the files here, so you need to check Current status and make sure that product verification succeeded. But it is possible that you will receive an error. In this case go to View Log and it will give you some information. If you had an error, you should understand that the problem exists. Now we will try to fix it.

Right click on the Start button and go to Control Panel. Now, go to Programs and Features and you will see a list of installed programs. After that, click on Turn Windows features on or off in the left section. As you can see, .NET Framework is here. You can remove the ticks, reboot the system and then put the ticks back. But we would leave that alone in Windows 10, cause you could run into some connection problems.

We are going to use Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool. You can download it from the link below:

Open up this program and it will start detect issues. It will recommend you couple of changes, so go ahead and click Next. After that you will receive the notification that the tool had made change to your computer.

You can click on Finish now, but also you can click on Next, it will create a log file. Hope, it will fix the issue.

The other side we wanted to show you guys is how to fix this issue with Windows System Update Readiness Tool.

You can download it from here:

This tool is not available for Windows 10 for some reason, but it is available for the other versions of Windows. Just run this tool and it will check the Microsoft .NET Framework area. So if you are running a previous version of Windows, then try to use this method.

Another way to fix this problem is running scannow in the command prompt. Right click on the Start button and open up Command Prompt with admin privileges. All you need to do here is type sfc /scannow. That will run a quick scan of your system and will try to refine the files and fix a lot of the issues.

The last part we wanted to cover is the last ditch of hope. There is .NET Framework Cleanup Tool. Be careful with this tool, because running this tool could do damage to your system. The reason why is because it’s not made by Microsoft. You can download it from the link below:

You will see the same interface as you did when using .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool. Just select a product to cleanup and click on Cleanup now. After that you will see a notification that you have to reboot your system.
