Hello Robin>

How do I get on if my OS won't even recognise .Net 2.0? It's definitely on
the machine, but isn't listed in the Add/Remove programs, so obviously it
isn't registered. I have downloaded the distributable package netfx64.exe,
which is the correct one for my OS (Vista X64), but when I try to run it, I
get an error message saying that .Net 2.0 is already installed as part of my
OS. I'm totally stuck. I need .net 2.0 to be able to run Pinnacle Media
Centre. Any suggestions which might help me would be much appreciated, as
this is driving me crazy.
