0x80131700 Build Error on .NET Micro Framework

This error can happen when building an application on newer versions of Windows as .NET Framework 2.0 is not installed by default.


Download and install .NET Framework 3.5 (this also contains .NET Framework 2.0). This can be done by downloading the framework from Microsoft or through Control Panel.

In order to do this through Control Panel:

  • Open Control Panel
  • Select Programs and Features
  • Select Turn Windows features on or off
  • Select .Net Framework 3.5 (Includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)
  • Click OK
