    how to install .net 1.1 on windows 8.1

    I was using a software which requires .Net Framework 1.1 on my previous version of Windows XP but now that I have purchased a new computer which is running the latest Windows 8.1 operating system, this software will not work on it because Windows 8.1 doesnt support .net 1.1. When ever I am trying to install the .Net 1.1 on my Windows 8.1 computer then it gets prevented from any installation. So, if anyone knows how to bypass this problem it would be appreciated. Thanks

    Even I was facing similar problems. I was using a product called The Print Shop before upgrading to Windows 8.1 but later it was not working. So, after a lot of research I found a tool called cleanup_tool.exe from this link - After running the below command

    cleanup_tool.exe /q:a /c:"cleanup.exe /p .NET Framework 1.1"

    in CMD, it cleaned out all the things made by the Windows 8.1 update. After that i installed The Print Shop software, which automatically installed the .Net Framework 1.1 again on my pc and now this program is working just fine in my operating system. So, you should try this as well and see if it works for you.

    It is not possible to manually install the .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2012 R2. It is no longer supported. If you try to install the package, the following error message is displayed: "Setup cannot continue because this version of the .NET Framework is incompatible with a previously installed one." To solve this problem, install the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. Go to this link for more detailed information -

    Follow the steps to install .Net 1.1 in your Windows 8.1 OS. First make a new folder called DotNet in C: drive. After that download NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package from this link - and save it as dotnetfx.exe. After that download .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 from this link - and rename it to dotnetfxsp1.exe. You will have to copy both these files into C:\DotNet folder. After that open CMD as admin and change to directory of C:\DotNet. Once you have done that then run the below commands one at a time:
    dotnetfx.exe /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:\DotNet"

    After that click Yes and wait for the installation to complete. Then type the below command:
    dotnetfxsp1.exe /Xp:C:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp
    msiexec.exe /a c:\DotNet\netfx.msi /p c:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp

    Now wait for the installer to finish and then install the Net Framework 1.1 with slipstreamed Service Pack 1 by running netfx.msi from the working folder. Hope this helps.
