Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Multi-Targeting Pack

If you’re getting such error on solution/project load:

Project is targeting .NETFramework,Version=v4.0 which is not installed on this machine. You must download this framework in order to open and build this project. In order to proceed, you must select an option below.

Then probably you’ve uninstalled Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Multi-Targeting Pack.

The problem is that you won’t be able to locate its installer anywhere in Internet. So MSDN is here to help: look for WCUMTPack on Visual Studio installation image.

Second – if you will try to reinstall it manually, you will get an error. The same MSDN article explains to use the following command instead:

call NetFx_DTP.msi EXTUI=1 /log "%TEMP%dd_netfx_dtp.txt"
