Hi,

Your recent configuration especially the .NET Framework needs to be updated to the .NET 3.0 Framework Service Pack 2. You can download the same from the Microsoft website.

You can get problem solved. It may also be an issue of your Antivirus currently running with your system. You did not mention the configuration of your system and the current antivirus on your machine.

If it is so make your running Antivirus up to date to protect your system. However, despite of your running Antivirus you can collect any other updated Antivirus from the market. Install it carefully. Thus you can solve the problem.    

I hope you understand it.

The setup error code 12 you see could be caused by anything. The error really depends on the program because not all programs have the same error numbers and not all program errors are caused by the same condition.

Each program has different error levels and error numbers and each error number is triggered by a certain factor or condition which may or may not have similarities to other error numbers.

If a problem is encountered while installing an application, this error can be caused by a certain condition or reason.

When this happens, the best thing to do is to check the compatibility of the program because it is usually caused by incompatibility between the operating system and the application.

To check their compatibility, visit the software’s official website or the website where you downloaded it and then check for its system requirements.

The system requirements or the technical specifications of the program list the required components that must be followed. Should there be even one category that doesn’t match the required component then the program might not work.

For example, if the program lists Microsoft .NET Framework in its system requirements, then you should install Microsoft .NET Framework first before installing the application.

The very important part when installing a program is to install it in the correct operating system because this is the usual cause of incompatibility.
