Repair .NET Framework on a Windows computer.

December 16, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Microsoft has released a tool called as Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool that will help you resolve issues you may face with the .NET  Framework on your Windows computer.

Which can be downloaded from the following link – Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool


The tool tries to resolve those issues by applying known fixes or by repairing the installed version of the .NET Framework. The tool can also be used to repair corrupted installations of supported .NET Framework versions. This includes .NET Framework 4 language packs. The tool is wizard-based and is easy to use

The .NET Framework repair tool provides an option to repair the versions of the .NET Framework that are installed on the computer (step 3 of the process) and requires the redistributable files of those versions to be available at the time of repair. By default, the tool downloads these packages from the Internet during repair. If your computer has limited or no Internet connectivity, you should use offline mode for repair. To do this, specify the /addsource option together with the path of the folder that contains the redistributable files, as in the following example:

NetfxRepairTool.exe /addsource \\SHARE_PC\SHARE_FOLDER

If the repair tool does not find the required redistributable in the specified folder, it will try to download the file from the Internet. The repair tool cannot do this if the required file cannot be downloaded.

The .NET Framework repair tool follows a four-step process:

  1. Tries to troubleshoot setup issues.
  2. Applies the fixes (with user consent).
  3. Tries to repair the installed versions of the .NET Framework (the .NET Framework 4, the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, the .NET Framework 3.0 SP2, and the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2).
  4. Collects logs (with user consent)

Below is the screenshot process of the .NET Framework repair tool in action on one of my pc’s
