Why is ToDoIst asking me to install .Net Framework 1.1?


That seems like crazy talk. I'm trying to upgrade my Outlook 2010 plugin to 2.2, and the installer is insisting I add .Net Framework 1.1 and SP1, which is around 100mb combined. Can this be right? Why would 2.2 require this and 2.0 would not?

Hi Peter,

If you could go to your Control Panel, and head to Add/Remove Programs to confirm that .NET Framework 1.1 is installed.

If it's installed then there is no reason for it to be asking. We have made many changes to the plugin requiring some changes.

Hi Peter,

I have checked on my end, and it was my mistake. It should not be asking to install .NET Framework 1.1.

Which version of Windows are you running? This could possibly be the system asking to install these updates, and not our installer.

Hello Peter,

Our Outlook plugin should ask you to install .NET Framework 1.1 and please install it as it's required if you want to install a plugin that will connect to the internet from within Outlook.

The older version didn't required this as it was built on a different engine (Awesomium) which unfortunately was buggy. The new version uses IE to connect and for that it does indeed require .NET Framework.

Best regards,

Hi there. I am unable to install .net 1.1 in windows 8. MS says it is a no go too. Have any fixes?
