Upgrading Windows will affect the following devices and/or programs:

These programs might not work properly after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel, and search for "uninstall a program". (Note: Programs marked as * can be safely reinstalled after the upgrade.)
Please install the OS language pack to enable this functionality: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Language pack


I can't seem to upgrade my Windows because of the language pack, what do I have to do to fix this?

Current OS: Win7 ultimate
OS I wanna upgrade to: Win7 ultimate

I was thinking of upgrading to the same Windows version instead of reinstalling the whole thing. I removed important registry accidentally because I didn't pay attention when using RevoUninstaller to remove a Microsoft product. Now system restore and •sfc /scannow" won't work at all.

Without an image backup or a backup of the registry entries that were removed (to merge the entries back to the registry), looks as though a reinstall is called for.

I went and try to reinstall like you suggested and found out that System Restore works when I load it from the disk. Now my problem is fixed, but I still wanna do the upgrade.

EDIT: It's still saying "Please install the OS language pack to enable this functionality: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Language pack" but I can't find the language pack to install. I can't even remove this program since it's nowhere in "Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features" or "Installed Updates"

What language do you need, Stocker?

Can you not download this from Windows Update?

If your machine is set to English, sounds as if your Windows install media is of a different language....

Sounds to me like you are trying to repair a current installation of the operating system and not upgrade. An upgrade would be from Windows 7 32bit to Windows 7 64bit. You cannot upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to the same version of Windows 7 Ultimate it is a called a repair.

Yeah your right I'm trying to do a repair install but this message "Please install the OS language pack to enable this functionality: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Language pack" is stopping me from doing so

What exactly happened to your computer, that has prompted you to attempt an operating system repair?

No worries. I suggest backing up your machine if you must fiddle around. Windows 7 has a dependable native (my opinion) image backup program that is simple and free to use.

Don't worry I learned my lesson, I'm only gonna use the default uninstaller for programs from Microsoft. But I'll try to start backing up from now on.

So you used a manual method to remove programs like cleaning stuff from the registry?

I use and recommend Revo Uninstaller its a good program for those programs that just ont uninstall via add/remove or programs and features.

I do not think the RevoUninstaller was the problem, Stocker. It was (I would guess) digging around in the registry and not paying the utmost attention when doing so. A few leftover reg entries when uninstalling will cause less problems on a system than removing reg entries that may be tied to oter programs installed.

Happy to hear you will start a backup regimen. I cannot help myself from fiddlin' around on my machines; I cannot tell you how many times an image backup has saved my a**. :clapping:

I missed that edit, because I dont read previous posts to topics I always wait for a new one instead of an edit.
