    Hi all.

    I've just installed a new graphics card, a Radeon 9800 Pro. After I restart
    my PC at the prompt after its installed, I get an error straight away -
    "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\mscorwks.dll could not be

    I can click OK and everything seems fine, but when I try to open the ATI
    Catalyst COntrol centre, the same message appears.

    Is this affecting anything and if so how can I get rid of it?

    Thanks for any help.

    The new Catalyst control center requires you have .NET installed.
    There's a link to download .NET on that page.

    Contrary to many popular assumptions, .NET is not completely evil and
    will not require you to sacrifice a puppy before you install it.
    It's just an API/developer module thingie like Java.

    History shows again and again

    Recent versions of the drivers, or more specifically the ATI Control
    Center, require Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 or higher.

    You can disable the control center and the ATI drivers will function
    perfectly well without it, albeit without access to some of the config
    menus, or install .NET framework to get rid of the error. I'd
    recommend the later as it's becoming increasing popular and it's
    almost inevitable you'll encounter other software that needs it.

    Service Pack 1 of the .NET framework was released a few days ago; you
    can get it either by downloading direct from Microsoft.com or via
    Windows Update.
