Uninstall all .NET Framework, reinstalled only .NET Framework 2.0 and … - examples was run.

May be useful.

Why does Microsoft .NET Framework effect panda3d at all!

Sounds like our old friend, the manifest files. If we’re not careful with the build, we may not have a fully-specified manifest, and installing the .NET framework appears to install the required manifest files.

I’m a little fuzzy on the precise details myself. I’d thought this was solved with 1.7.0.


So did I.

Perhaps the OP was referring to Panda3D version 1.6.2? He doesn’t specify a version, and our release notes for 1.7.0 do indeed recommend against using that version.
