I had an application that runs on .Net (ACT! 2010) continually crashing.“ Tech support promised me that if I uninstalled .Net 2 and re-installed it, everything would be OK.“ The only problem was, when clicking on the “Remove” button, I get the error message “Microsoft . NET framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 cannot be uninstalled”.
After hours of reading through TechNet articles, forum posts and the like, I found the very simple answer: uninstall .Net 3.5 and 3 first.“ After it’s big brothers were gone, .Net 2 gracefully uninstalled.“ Now anyone want to make me a bet if ACT! will start running again with a clean install of .Net?
