In attempting to update the software for My Passport Essential (Win7), I see the following specific caution in Step 2 of the 12-9-10 update:
“WD SmartWare 1.4 will only work with Microsoft .NET 3.5 Framework. WD SmartWare 1.4 will not work with Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.x or version 4.x.”
Unfortunately, my PC has the .NET Framework version 4.x installed. I see no further instructions addressing how to downgrade from .NET 4 to .NET 3.5.
I would greatly appreciate guidance on how to downgrade.
Thanks very much.
