DDU doesn't run despite .NET Framework installed??

Post by RS3Enjoyer »

I have been turned towards DDU as a solution to my graphics card woes. Unfortunately, I cannot even attempt to use the program as it will not run.

I don't remember what my .NET Framework was previously, but I now should have 7.0 installed fresh from the Microsoft website. As DDU failed to launch without .NET framework 4.8 or higher, I tried to download... but now it still will not open. Have I failed to activate .NET framework in some way?

I installed the framework, ran the executable again and repaired the installation... still DDU won't recognize that I have a high enough NET framework!

Please, what am I doing wrong???

Hi,
I think you may have installed .NET 7, but DDU need something else, it need the .NET FrameWork 4.8 (usually there by default on a Windows 10 installation)
On what O.S are you ? is there an error message? anything on the windows event log under application ?

I don't know what exactly went wrong, maybe I unintentionally downloaded the SDK for 7.0 instead of the environment... I expected an error when trying to install the 4.8 specific evironment, but no! It installed just fine, and DDU worked like it should! (I am upgraded from a Windows 7 physical disc to 10, my PC is or almost is a decade old by now, trying to afford a new one but I'm stuck with it for now. Ironically I think my previous framework was 4.7.1 or something)

...although, to my horror, DDU still has not fixed my issue I was hoping it would alieviate. (AMD driver keeps being reverted by Windows Update.)

I was going to trash this thread as it was solved on its own, but since you replied, maybe someone else will see this

To prevent the revert, use this tools from microsoft : wushowhide.diagcab ( I think you can get it from there: https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/detail ... whide.html )

it will allow to prevent Windows update to install that specific driver. You must try to hide the update before that driver get install. It wont work if that driver is already installed.
