Hi all,

I had a program all built up in C# using visual studio 2008. I also used a deployment project to install it.
this program runs on several computers with several OS for a while. Recently I installed it on windows 7 starter.

A first weird thing is on install it says i need to have .net framework 3.5.1 which is weird because I know windows 7 starter comes with it ( i see it on windows components), and i never got this message when installing it on windows xp or vista or 7. after that the setup continues ok.

The problem is that the program wont start! i double click the icon, I get no message but the program wont open.

I have no idea how to start debugging this thing

thanks for the help

Have you tried installing 3.5.1 again?

Have you tried installing 3.5.1 again?

you mean to uninstall it from windows components ? why ?
is it possible that there is an problem with the installed version ?

i'll try it later and report.

I think windows 7 starter only comes bundled with .Net Client Profile 3. You may be referencing a different framework - probably the full blown framework (3.5 or 4). When you run the program, does it appear in the process tab of task manager?

hi skatamatic,
I just tried it again on a different computer. I installed the program on windows 7 starter, it faild to open (didnt see anything on task manager).
the user upgraded to windows 7 home premium and still I cant open my program...
