For correct installation of .NET support, you should have local
If you installed the Microsoft .Net Framework v1.1 prior to installing
ArcGIS 9.0 then the ESRI Net support will have been automatically
If the Net Framework v1.1 was installed after ArcGIS 9.0 then the
following steps have be made to install the ESRI Net support. You can
also follow the steps below to validate installation of the ESRI Net

Panel (see How to Uninstall above for details),

Install .NET support for ArcGIS 9.2
For ArcGIS 9.2 need inext steps (thanks to Jayme Laber):
"After some research on the ESRI web site I found the solution. When
running ArcView 9.2 you need to install Microsoft Net 2.0 rather than
Microsoft Net 1.1. Once I installed Net version 2, I was able to
continue through the instructions and was able to complete steps 2 -
10 with no problems. I would suggest a post to your support page that
alerts your users to this situation and its solution."

Toolbar is grayed out

anything but grayed out. What needs to be done to activate the other

An error occurred while installing
Q. While installing the extension, we get the following error message
“An error occurred while installing. This exception will be ignored
and the uninstall will continue...... -->cannot delete subkey tree
because subkey does not exist.” What is the reason of that and what
shall we do?
A. The reasons: The error comes when you are installing the new
version of the extension above an old version, in the case when you
have installed the old version with an old version of the ArcGIS
Service Pack. The error of this type is a typical one for .NET
applications, and have a nature of mis-matching versions of the ESRI
interoperability library, which have different numbers within ArcGIS.
The error is not fixed by the manufacturer of the core program.
What to do? If you have the installer of the previous version, run the
installation once again, and then uninstall it. The following
installation of a newer module will run smoothly. Another way to solve
this problem is to go to the Control Panels - Add/Remove programs –
Click on the extension (remove) and the Program will give you several
options: Remove and Repair. If you click on “Repair” it will ask for a
path to the original installer file. After repairing you could un-
install the old version.
If the old version of installer no longer exist. In this case try to
solve this problem by going to the Control Panels - Add/Remove
programs – Click on the extension (remove) and the Program will give
you several options: Remove and Repair. If you click on “Repair” it
will ask for a path to the original installer file. Specify the path
to a new installer. After repairing you could un-install the program.
If it does not work. Go to start menu, click on the “Run” in the start
menu and type “Reget” (or if you have another editor of registry, use
it). Then manually remove the following keys HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software
\Microsoft\Installer in the subdivisions: Assemblies, Features,
Products, UpgradeCodes. Each of this subkeys have information of the
products (ArgosTools, Slicemaker, Typeconvert and others). In the
subkesy Products find the code of the product (click on the every
subkey and find what is its ProductName). Search the registry using
this “ProductName” and delete all strings with this “ProductName”.
