Installing .NET 2.0 on various Windows OSes

Both the WholesaleBackup client and server require Microsoft .NET 2.0 to be installed (see this link for more information on why Microsoft will likely support .NET 2.0 indefinitely). It is usually the case that .NET 2.0 is already installed on the computer you are installing our application on. In the event that .NET 2.0 is not installed, you may receive a popup message after install stating "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect", or on XP/2003 the application may crash at startup. This article details how to install .NET 2.0 on various versions of Microsoft Windows.
