for some reason when i run the the sims 3 launcher or the mod installer it give me an error that says
.NET Framework Installation Error
Please set registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\InstallRoot to point to the .NET Framework install location. i cant figure out what to do ive tryed to look for this file but i cant find it can anyone help me
First, go into Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs, find everything called "Microsoft .NET Framework ...", and uninstall it. Then download and install the latest .NET Framework from Microsoft, here. You should then be able to install.
What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

and i need someway to make them work without the sims3 launcher
this problem wont go away i probably need to wipe the HDD
but my dad wont
so is there a way to install online store items without the launcher
Once again, Unoeme, you've failed to go into enough detail. Nobody can help you if you continually just say "it didn't work". Please explain HOW it didn't work - error messages, it wouldn't download, it seemed to install properly but the problem is still there etc. Wiping the harddrive is about the last thing you want to do, especially if it's going to interfere with other people who also use the computer. It may have to be done, however if you go into more detail, there may be other ways about it that we can get you to try first.

ok so i uninstalled microsoft .Net programs in add and remove programs the installed those 2 programs to cleanup my comp and ran them they fixed everything they found then i ran the setup for the .net thing and at the part where it says you can diconnect from the internet it says it got an error and it undoes everything it did there you go
Do you want help fixing the error, then? So what does the error says?
Like whiterider, whose dog ate her crystal ball, mine is my cat who detest my looking glass (cos I'm always peering into it to look for my prince charming) - he(the cat, the prince is still over the rainbow) shattered it just this evening
i deleted the microsoft .net file and i when i tryed to intsall it it didnt work
One potential fix here is to go and re-install that version of .net directly from Microsoft's download site (I don't remember exactly but it might be nice enough to have a repair installation option). This should repair that outdated versions settings if it works.
UNoeMe, you have been asked by four different people to state exactly WHAT doesn't work and what errors you are getting, so please answer those questions now if you want help. Repeating "doesn't work" is not going to lead anywhere – if you continue this, I'm going to lock this thread since all that acheives is waste other people's time.
In post #13 you state "i ran the setup for the .net thing and (..) it says it got an error" -- please take a screenshot of that error message, or write down what it says, and post that here.
In post #16 you state "that didnt work" – please state exactly what you did, what steps failed, and what error messages you got (if any).
I'm also moving this to tech help since it's got nothing to do with your actual game.
There is a lot of info on this error on the web (I just searched with your error msg from post#1) but all the solutions are very technical and you need to Read carefully and Follow Instructions exactly as stated in the order it was stated.
