Issue

A dialog of "Cannot open .NET editor with .NET Framework" comes up with new installation of Webclient or after a Microsoft update of .NET 4.5.x.

webclientScheduleNetControl.jpgThere was an error trying to create the .NET control for this page.

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Internet Explorer

Cause

Microsoft changed the behavior of Internet Explorer when .net 4.5.x is installed on a PC. It turns off .net 2.0 support which is needed for several editors to function on Webclient browser PCs

Resolution

See web.Client v2.0 .Net Editor Hotfix on the Download Center. This is a registry key file that installs the registry keys mentioned further down in this article. It allows Internet Explorer to utilize .net 2.0 that several webclient editors use.

This hotfix contains a .reg file which changes the registry, it is recommended to make a Windows Restore point or a backup (export) of the existing registry folder (hive).

The hotfix only updates the following keys

  1. On an x86 Operating System
    1. Add a DWORD attribute with the name EnableIEHosting to KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework
    2. Set the value to 1
  2. On an x64 Operating System
    1. Add a DWORD attribute with the name EnableIEHosting to KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NETFramework
    2. Set the value to 1

A reboot of the webclient browser PC is required after the change is made. Each browser PC will need to have this fix applied.
