Cause

Only the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile is installed on the workstation. This is an optional update that is now available through Windows Update (KB982670). If you only have this installed you will NOT be able to install the AX 2009 client.

Resolution

1. Uninstall Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile then install AX 2009 client. You may then re-apply KB982670.

OR

2. Install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 also then install AX 2009.
