    I need to install microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 and have been trying for months to do it. It always seems to be installing until the end then says that it can't finish because of something about a 64 bit system. I can't do anything with pictures and now my printer needs it. This is a new computer, Dell Inspiron one all in one touch screen. How can I get this to work?
