It is there, but the BDS installer requires the .NET SDK 1.1

I have read a few accounts where the installer of the Borland Delphi Studio does not allow to install the Borland Developer Studio, because it expects the Microsoft .NET SDK 1.1 to be installed. Yet, looking into the list of installed applications, it is listed just fine - and it works as well.

Today one user found the reason for it, which may well give the standard solution to this problem. You can install the MS .NET SDK without installing the .NET Framework itself. Thus, the prerequisits installer will install the .NET Framework, but not the SDK again. Yet, the installation of the SDK will be a little different, then when installing it after the .NET Framework and this difference will lead the BDS installer to the assumption that it is not correctly installed.

Solution: simply uninstall the complete MS .NET SDK and reinstall it and you should be ready to go.

I was just about to smash my computer with a hammer. Your solution stopped me from doing that.

Thank you!
