Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4 SP1 64 bit not installing on Windows 7
I am getting the following message when trying to install the version 13.0.1 of the Crystal Reports Runtime:
"This software package can only be installed on systems that has installed .NET Framework 2.0 or higher."
The CR file is CRRuntime_64bit_13_0_1.msi (Crystal Reports Runtime for .net 4.0 sp1).
The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Spanish running on a VMWare virtual machine.
The OS has few things installed. The Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is not installed. The .NET 4.0 framework is installed using the full framework redistributable (dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe and the Spanish language pack dotNetFx40LP_Full_x86_x64es.exe).
In the Add/Remove programs panel control snippet I can see the following entries:
Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Extended
Plus the two corresponding Spanish language packs:
Paquete de idioma de Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
Paquete de idioma de Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Extended
I get the same error trying to install the 32 bit version of the runtime (CRRuntime_32_bit_13_0_1).
For trying purposes only, I tried to install the previous version of Crystal Reports (The name of the package is CRRuntime_12_3_mlb.msi, I think the official name was Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008), and I get a similar error message:
"This software package can only be installed on systems that has instaleld .NET Framework 1.1 or higher".
What am I doing wrong? I thought the .NET 4.0 included all previous versions of the framework.
Do I have to install the .net Framework 2.0?
