Hi everyone,

The first problem I have is that no links (to websites) work from any programs (other than links within Firefox and IE). When I press them nothing happens. My default browser is Firefox and Im running Windows Xp pro sp2.

My next problem is with Microsoft Update. It's showing me that I have to update Microsoft Framework to version 1.1. I have version 2 installed right now so im a little confused. I tried a repair install of version 2 (framework) but it's still showing me I need to update.

Thanks for your help,
Matt

For your first issue, try using SetBrowser to reset your default browser setting. Reboot once after you use it, just for good luck. :)

Your second issue isn't actually an issue. The .NET framework supports multiple versioning. Apps that are built for .NET 1.x need to run on the .NET 1.x CLR, even though the .NET 2.0 runtimes are installed. The update notification comes up in WU because you need to update from .NET 1.0 to 1.1. The 2.0 CLR will remain unaffected by the update.

The links work! :)
Thanks a bunch.

But I have all the versions installed (1.0, 1.1, 2.0). Its all in C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework. Any ideas?

Thanks

Glad it worked. :)

The .NET update could be a new minor version then. Go ahead and install it. It shouldn't do any harm. If it still shows up on WU after you install it, then you'll know something's wrong.

I installed Microsoft.NET Framework 1.1, Service Pack 1 for 1.1, and a security update for 1.1 and everythings good now.

Thanks:)

Setbrowser seems like an interesting utility, I'll have to check that out.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
