Q2. I've installed PBLi but it won't run. I either get an execution
error or told I need this program called .Net Framework 2.0? What
A2. PBLi requires .Net Framework 2.0, which is a free addition
to Windows XP from Microsoft. A number of applications use this,
so there is a good chance it is on the PC that is being installed
The installation file has .Net Framework 2.0 built-in. If the installation
routine detects that it is not present it will install it invisibly
in the background. Sometimes this invisible installation can take
longer than the program installation itself. If users click on the
program to run it before the .Net Framework 2.0 installation has
finished this can result in a error.
Before installation it is best to check first if .Net Framework
2.0 is present in the Add/Remove programs part of the control panel.
If it isn't, wait a minute after installation before launching PBLi.
This should give the .Net Framework a chance to install (wait for
hard disk activity to cease).
If problems with launching persist, remove PBLi entirely and install
.Net Framework 2.0 separately before re-installing PBLi. You can
get .Net Framework 2.0 from
