    Hi there,
    I have been trying to install Microsoft Synctoy on my laptop but it fails with an error message which says - 'An error occured while installing system components for SyncToy (x64)'
    I have Microsoft.NET Framework 4 Client Profile on my laptop and wondered if it was because of this that it cannot install NET Framework 2.1?
    Also when trying to download the Framework 2.1 there are so many different ones I don't know which one is the right one for my laptop!
    Thanks for any help

    Here is my laptop info:

    I installed both versions onto my Windows 7 computer and they both installed fine. I downloaded them from here.
    I also have Microsoft.NET Framework 4 Client Profile and that seemed to have no effect on the installation. I am wondering, why do you think that it would need to install NET Framework 2.1?
