stam : well, since Eugene doesn't know what's wrong with freeze/crash on start... blind guessing is an option lol
you posted version where mate?
EDIT: sorry didn't notice your post above. firefox doesn't print framework version (laptop), try another browser.
your desktop seems to have v2, v3 and v3.5 installed.
ah.. Houston we got a problem. it's seem that the laptop don't have any framework :con
i tried to get the information through 3 different browsers and i don't see any framework version so i tried to do this with the registry editor and i wasn't able to find the folder with the net framework and NDS... :dontgetit
any ideas what this could mean?
