Error Code 2908 and net framework 2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, when I try to install Visual Studio in Windows 7 or the compatiblity tab with Vista or Window Xp service pack 2 or 3 I get an error code 2908. In searching for this code, i found that it seems to be associated with Net Framework 2 in some way. When I try to install Pinacle studio ultimate, version 12, I receive the message that I need net framework 2. I tried to Downloading this from Microsoft but it stops and says that it is already loaded. In the turn on-off section of the control panel I see net framework 3.5 but not 2.

    Is error code 2908 about net framework 2? Can I correct this?

  • In Windows 7 RC the built-in .Net Framework version is 3.5, it includes .Net Framework 2.0 and later versions. Therefore we cannot install it again.
