I'm not sure if I ran into a unique case or not, but I thought I'd post my workaround here just in case someone else stumbles across this.

 

My PC came with .NET Framework 4.5, but MO was still throwing this error. I tried another workaround posted here regarding changing registry values, but that didn't do the trick. Here's what I had to do:

 

  • Control Panel ---> Programs ---> Turn Windows features on or off
  • Enable .NET Framework 3.5

That's it.

MO updated recently and probably changed its method of checking for it, which is why the registry change wouldn't work.

Gotcha. Is it specifically checking for v3.5? It seems so given the fix I applied.

It's checking for 3.5 according to what I've only recently learned. It is because of the NMM code requiring dotNet. I still don't know if that is the actual version it uses, as I was under the impression that it required version 4+, in which case the warning would be looking for the wrong version. I'd have to research to find out if it actually requires that version or not.
