Can's start Samsung Kies
Completely new to Android so please have a little patience...
I am having a lot of trouble with this piece of c**p software - Kies!
I installed it on my XP SP3 laptop without any trouble but when I start it the program tells me that I need to install .NET Framework 2.0? I have already installed 4.0 and removed all previous versions before that so that sounds kinda strange to me... Well okay I uninstall 4.0 and install 2.0 SP1 instead - When I start the program then it tells me that it failed to launch main stage! Okay I uninstall 2.0 and install 3.5 instead just to give it a go... But nope still nothing!
Now I am getting frustrated so I uninstall .NET framework completely and uninstall Kies. Then I install Kies again without Framework and it aparently tries to install it by itself... Only to give me the error that the file "xnet_framework_3.5" is not a Win32 file?! WT*?!! :S
When that didn't work either I tried to install ALL the .NET framework's and Kies again - One by one! So 2.0 + Kies, no result - Uninstall all! Then 3.0 + Kies, no result - Uninstall! ...And so on! I have also tried to have ALL the .NET applications installed at the same time and then install Kies - Still no luck!! :'(
What am I missing here guys? I would really like to use this software since it looks like it has a lot of neat options... But I can't get it to work! Have tried for 3 days now and the only option I see left is a reformat of my hdd... And I don't wanna go down that road
