Installing windows XP mode on windows 7 professional, for .NET framework 4 updates to install. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I already have a problem with (3) .NET framework 4 updates to install.

    Does it take installing windows XP mode with windows 7, to install successfully (3) security updates.

    right now, all (3) of them remain ''hidden'' at windows updates.

    I also read the (windows update system readiness tool) article, about how it might be windows XP's

    problem not installed, for some updates to fail. Is this probly the cause.

  • Having installed those updates successfully on four different Windows 7 machines here, I can assure you that no "windows XP mode" is required.

    I also have a suggestion. There is a forum dedicated to .NET Framework setup and installation issues where you'll get the best suggestions to solve your problem:


    When you post there, please be sure to state that you are using Windows 7, and provide identification of the three updates that are failing in Windows Update.
