this will work! just install the one you need, x86(32bit) or x64(64bit) http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.as
I have installed NDP40-KB2468871-v2-x86.exe and dotNetFx40_Client_x86_x64.exe from Microsoft and I still get the message that ".NET 4.0 is not installed" Operating system is Vista Business with SP1 and fully patched. What is wrong with TrueView 2013?
See log and captured window attached.
After my previous reply, I tried installing .NET 4.0 using the online installer ("dotNetFx40_Full_setup.exe" 869KB) After running this installer, I tried the TrueView 2013 installation, and this time it finished the installation without errors.
Though I realize this issue is closed, with a solution, I would like to post the solution that worked for me as well. I too had fully functioning .NET 4.0 and TrueView errored out on installation. I installed a trial version of the full ACad 2013 in order to do some last minute file conversion. I noticed that where TrueView was hanging up, ACad modified the file and continued through. Thus, after installation I decided to try True View again, and to my great surprise, it worked. So AutoDesk has included in one software package (ACad) the ability to address .NET framework packages and omitted or excluded it from the other (TrueView).
My steps, whether quicker or slower.
1. Install the full (trial) version of AutoCad 2013
2. Install True View 2013 again.
3. At some future point uninstall the AutoCad software. It does not cause any problems on the machine running two versions of the same program. Just don't select 2013 as the default program for opening .DWG files.
After following all of the advice here--trying the "full" install of NET 4.0 and installing ACAD 2013 trial, I noticed while installing the trial it installed KB2468871. After searching Microsoft's website and retrieiving that, I installed it on another machine with NET 4.0, no Autocad and installed TruView 2013 easily.
So, in short, if you get KB2468871 from Microsoft (and have NET 4.0 already installed), you should be able to install Tru View 2013 without a hitch.
Now if I could just get those 3 hours of my life back.
