Any ideas on how to get it to install for me? Or what the cause of this could be?

I have the .net framework 4.0 installed and have already tried a reinstall of that, as well as an uninstall and just installing .net 2.0. not of this has helped.

You should get .Net 3.5! If you are running windows 7 it's located in Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off > Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1
