I'm getting a registry error that says:

Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\vbc.exe cannot access necessary file msvcr90.dll

I've searched my computer and I do have msvcr90.dll in the WINDOWS\SxS folder. Why can't vbc.exe find this file? Do I need to manually copy it into a certain folder? I did a successful repair on the .NET Framework v3.5 Update but I still get the same error. What do I need to do? Should I just uninstall v 3.5?

I figured I would uninstall .NET Framework 3.5 and see what happened, and sure enough, the error went away. The registry is fine now. Do I even need v3.5? I have .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2, as well as .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2, .NET Framework 1.1 and .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix already installed.

<<Do I even need v3.5?>>

That depends on why you installed it.

I only install a given version of Microsoft .NET when an application that I want to install...demands MS .NET as a prerequisite.

nLite is one such application, while my ATI video drivers are the other.

If I didn't use those two applications, I would not install any version on my systems.

I understand that some games work in the same manner as these two particular apps I chose as examples.

The only reason I installed it is because Windows Update told me, "Updates are ready for your computer."

I also installed the 3.5 framework after it appeared in the Windows update list
Took ages to install, subsequently had a few blue screens, but now settled down.
Can you delete the folder in the root named b376a1........ - have deleted all the temp files,
not sure if this folder is also temp.

I remember reading somewhere that XP will not see any thing over 3 gig of ram.
