Fix: Cannot Install Notefolio on Windows

A lot of users are reporting problems installing Notefolio and NoteFolio Creator on the latest Windows versions. While the issues seem virtually non-existent on older Windows versions, the applications seem to have some underlying compatibility problems with Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Most of the time, users complain about receiving the .NET Framework error during the installation part.

What confuses a lot of users is the fact that the .NET Framework 1.1 is not supported on Windows 8 and Windows 10. The latest Windows version ship with .NET Framework 3.5 already installed, which is supposed to include the older releases.

However, some applications (such as Notefolio by Texas Instruments) are specifically asking for the old .NET Framework 1.1 Framework because they haven’t been updated for a while. This is what creates compatibility issues.

If you’re currently struggling with the installation of Notefolio or NoteFolio Creator, we have a way that will allow you to get around the problem. Please follow the steps below in order until you manage to resolve the issue.

How to Fix the ‘.NET Framework 1.1’ Error on Windows 8 / 10

Even if .NET Framework version 1.1 is not officially supported on Windows 8 and Windows 10, there is a certain packaged version that can be installed successfully despite the compatibility problems.

  1. If you’re encountering this issue, visit this link (here) and download the installer for Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package.
  2. Then, right-click on the installer and choose Run as Administrator in order to open it with elevated privileges. Keep in mind that without the appropriate permissions, the installation will fail.
  3. Next, simply follow the on-screen prompts to install Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package on your computer.

Note: If you’re presented with a compatibility error pop-up with a choice between Getting help online and Continue the installation (without getting help), click on Continue the installation. Also, if Notefolio refuses to start after you successfully installed the missing framework, make sure that your currently installed TI connect software is different from version v4 because Notefolio is known to malfunction with it. You can download an older version from this link (here).

In case you’re looking for a better alternative, a lot of users are hailing Ti-Coder as the better alternative to NoteFolio.
