Missing File: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional\Run Time\0700\Intel32\DotNetInstaller.exe" cannot access a necessary file, "mscoree.dll".

You received this error message after running a diagnostic scan using antivirus software, such as Norton AntiVirus or Norton WinDoctor. Some diagnostic software recognizes DotNetInstaller.exe as a .NET application that depends on the .NET Framework and reports it. DotNetInstaller.exe is a .NET application that is used when an installation is installing .NET assemblies. InstallShield installs DotNetInstaller.exe as part of its engine files. DotNetInstaller.exe does not work on systems that do not have the .NET Framework, but the file is cached with the InstallShield engine files just in case it is needed in the future when the .NET Framework is installed. It is technically correct, but InstallShield always checks for the Framework before trying to use it. You can safely ignore this message.

However, if you do not want the message to appear, you must download and install the .NET Framework. As a forewarning, the .NET Framework is fairly large, approximately 20 MB.


You then need service pack 1 for .net 1.1


Then run Windows Update to check for critical updates
