Hi Jim,
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.

Hi Che,

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.
