be taken to the DigitalOfficePro page from which
you can go to the Microsoft’s download page
to download the .NET framework version 2.0. Once
you have downloaded and installed the .NET framework
on your machine, you should run the PowerFlahsPoint
setup program again.
If your system does not have Microsoft Windows
Installer 3.1, while installing the .NET framework
version 2.0, you may be asked to install the Microsoft
Windows Installer 3.1 as well. In this case, you

3.1 before proceeding with the installation of Microsoft
.NET frame work 2.0. Then install DigitalOfficePro:
