Windows Update Install of .Net 3.0 on top of a pre-release version runs into problems

February 13, 2007

I recently posted that Windows Update has made .Net 3.0 available via WU (windows update).

Unfortunately, it seems like our Windows Update install will not work well if you already have a pre-release version of .Net 3.0 installed.  Perhaps you installed that with early builds of Times Reader.

The New York Times just released a required upgrade (v0.1.0.5) that requires you to be using the final version of .Net 3.0.

We are working with the .Net Setup folks to see how this issue should be fixed…until we do, please be careful…the advice now is to make sure you manually uninstall the older version of .Net 3.0 and then install using Windows Update or an app that will help install the framework (like Times Reader).

Or you could just get Windows Vista…
