Hi Marta,

It's a bug of installer.
1. Open regedit.
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SOFTWARE->Microsoft->Net Framework Setup->NDP.
3. Rename "CDF" branch to "v5" or maybe some other branch without numbers in name to a branch that contains number in name.
4. Install Locstudio.
5. Rename branch from p3. back.

It works for me and I hope it helps you.

Oleg.

Another solution Dec 14, 2011

Many thanks for your reply, Oleg.

Another professional has just suggested a solution which I tried and it works too: uninstall Framework 4 (I uninstalled all later versions after 2.0) and install LocStudio. Automatic updates will install Framework 4 afterwords but then it won't be an issue because you already have LocStudio up and running. FYI: I installed 6.11.

Thank you all for your input, it's much appreciated.

All the best,
Marta

Hi,

I'm having the same issue, but on Windows 7. None of the solutions above worked for me.

Any other suggestions, please?

Thanks!

Same problem on Win7 Jan 31, 2012

Hi,

None of the solutions above work for me. I tried uninstalling .NET everyhing and installing LocStudio 6.11, but nothing works. I still get the same two errors.

BTW, I had LocStudio 4 installed but I uninstalled it to install 6.11. Now I will have to re-install the 4 version and hope it works.

LocStudio 6.11 on Windows 7 Mar 20, 2012

Dear Urska and Andrada,

After adding a new laptop to the family I was afraid of having the same issue on Windows 7, however, as Martin said, everything worked like a charm with the "uninstall Net. Framework first" method (I installed LocStudio 6.11). My advice is do not just reboot the system but shut it down completely and initiate it again before trying to install LocStudio.

Hope you were able to solve it.

Thank you all for your input,
Marta
