Installing Able Bioplus and Able Payroll in windows machine is straight forward in most cases and fairly easy. Lately, when windows 10 was introduced in the market, Installation for both software became a puzzle that leaves IT and Techs in awe.
The common trouble yet so hard to fix in windows 10 is the windows feature .NET Framework 3.5
This specific windows feature is a requirement in running these softwares. This feature was released in November 2007 targeting windows 7 and windows XP to run programs that we’re created in Visual Studio to utilize the windows components native to the operating system used by that time.
Windows 10 didn’t omitted this feature of course, but it wasn’t put as a default feature. Sure, going to control panel’s Turn Windows features on and off will enable your tech to install it, Unfortunately it won’t help. How about downloading the offline installer for .Net Framework 3.5 and install it? sadly it didn’t work as well.
For sure there would be a lot of third party programs out there that can install this but the question is, will it work? is it safe from virus, adware and spyware? is it for free?.
