I use CrossOver, a Windows emulator based on Wine. ConnectWise requires .NET Framework 3.5 to run. According to CodeWeavers (CrossOver creator), it seems like I can install the .NET Framework 3.5. The problem I’m running into is that in order to install .NET Framework 3.5, you have to install .NET Framework 2.0, 2.0 SP1, 3.0, 3.0 SP1 and then 3.5. I can’t seem to get past 2.0 SP1.
I created a new WinXP bottle to test this out on and was able to install 2.0 with no issues. When it gets to the point when it’s going to install 2.0 SP1, it gives this error message:
I’m not sure why I’m getting this since I’m running a Windows XP emulator.
Does anyone know a workaround for installing .NET Framework in CrossOver or can anyone think of a better way of doing this?
