To Check For .NET Framework 1.1

Clue Manager requires that Windows XP has been updated by installing the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1. You must have Administrator privileges to update the operating system.

You can check to see if the .NET Framework 1.1 is installed by clicking Start on your Windows desktop, selecting Control Panel, and then double-clicking the Add or Remove Programs icon. When that window appears, scroll through the list of applications. If you see "Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1" listed, it is installed.

Alternatively, you can check to see if the .NET Framework 1.1 is installed by downloading the file, unzipping it, and running it.

If the .NET Framework 1.1 is not installed, then there are two different ways to install it.

Some have mistakenly downloaded the ".NET Framework SDK Version 1.1", which is the Software Development Kit and is 106 MB. You do NOT need this.
