Im trying to do this because I can't open some programs in Vista because I get the error message blah blah mscorwks.dll could not be loaded. I figured i'd upgrade .netframework and all would be well, I was dead wrong. :mad:

I installed Vista once on a suspected bad drive, just to try it out, and was not impressed. It looked ok, but I did not prefer the UI to XPs, and maybe it was a matter of me not using it long enough (I played WoW for the several weeks I was using it), but I did not see any real good reason to switch from XP. Thankfully that drive did go bad, so I put my XP drive back in and I was happy once more.

This error doesn't give me many leads online, except that one user got it fixed this way:

They were running XP though. Wish I could help more, but there isn't much info out there on this error.

Uninstall .NET Framework 3.5. Then make sure Encrypted File System is not enabled.

Reboot the machine.

Then reinstall .NET Framework 3.5
