Hi, This will be my first self-experienced tutorial.
I had this problem and found the solution. Now, because this solution is very hard to find, I am posting it here to make it easier for you
Are you angry, frustrated or even crying over your PC because you can't play Lotro . Is the problem the horrible .NET Framework ?
Then Do not fear dear: Hobbit, Human, dwarf and Elf ... the solution is at hand. In a few minutes, you will master 3 simple commands, that will change your present life.
Step1: Create a folder named: DotNet in C:\
[Now you have C:\DotNet
Step 2: Download .NET Framework
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
Make sure that the Redistributable Package's name is: dotnetfx.exe
Rename the Service Pack 1 (Second download to: dotnetfxsp1.exe)
Step 3: Open Command Prompt as Admin
Step4: The Commands
First write cd C:\DotNet (To change the Location)
dotnetfx.exe /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:\DotNet"
Follow steps and It should say complete
No message pops up
[CODE]msiexec.exe /a c:\DotNet\netfx.msi /p c:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp[/code]
Wait for Windows Installer for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 to finish and disappear automatically.
Step5: Install Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 with slipstreamed/integrated Service Pack 1 by running [b]netfx.msi[/b] created in the working folder.
