I bought a new laptop and am trying to install PCAccess.   I get a message that states:

 

"This application requires the .NET framework version 2.0 to be installed"  and then gives a link to install it.  The link says that Vista and Windows 7 come with the version 2.0 of the .NET framework preinstalled.   There is no mention of Windows 10.    I have the latest version of Windows 10.

 

I don't remember getting this message the last time I installed PCA.   

 

Any suggestions on how to handle this?

Go to control panel / Turn Windows features on or off

 

There you will dot net 3.X or 4.X.  I have them both enabled.

 

You might also just be able to install dot net 2.0 via the link on your Windows 10 computer.

 

Here recently built a Windows 2016 box for stuff like PCA, Upstart et al and access it via RDP.

 

It has no fluff and runs nicely for PCA use.

Thanks Pete!   Your help got me headed in the right direction.   

 

Here is what worked for me:

 

In search type "Windows Features"

Turn on .NET Framework 3.4 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)

Restart

 

Now I am back up and running!

Good news!!!

 

Here as I am mostly using Linux these days built a Windows 2016 server and RDP (via Ubuntu) to it for:

 

1 - PCA

2 - HAI touchscreen designer

3 - UPB Upstart

4 - Homeseer HS Touchscreen designer

5 - Windows graphical stuff

 

This keeps all my configuration on one box (archived to the NAS box).
