Other than the fact .NET Framework 1.1 creates an extra user acccount
you can delete I don't foresee any problems installing the .NET
Framework. The .NET Framework is just a set of libraries that run
C-Sharp and Visual Basic 2003, 2005, and 2008 applications. I've sold
about 200 copies of Montezuma's Revenge and at no time have I gotten any
tech support e-mails about .NET Framework 3.0 or 3.5. When I released
STFC, which initially was built for .NET Framework 1.1, I did get a few
tech support issues about that extra user account 1.1 adds. They would
restart and got a login screen and wanted it turned off. Simply deleting
the .NET account it created solved the problem. To date that is the only
issue I've heard of.
As for your issue with updating Windows in general I am a bit mystified
as to the problem. Generally installing service packs are a good thing.
They fix all sorts of nasty bugs, fix critical security issues, and
generally make Windos more stable not less so. I've got Service Pack 3
on XP and it runs great on XP. XP with Service Pack 3 is several times
more stable than Windows Xp without any service packs.
Anyway, not trying to convert you here. Just commenting as to the fact
updating your system shuldn't be causing you grief. Windows Update and
Windows service packs are meant to be easy and painless to install for
both technically and not so technically minded computer users. Smile.

Yes, I remember that you sent me a demo of Rail Racer. Truthfully I
have not tried it. I never installed any net framework on either of my
computers. This one might have it though. So I might have to try
installing the game. I do not up date my computers with the newest
Microsoft stuff because it always has screwed them up and I then have to
turn the computer back to before I did the up date.
