When I try to run the sandcastleinstaller.exe I receive an error window stating that "Sandcastle Guided Installation has stopped working." I receive this error on the most recent version as well as the last stable build.  I'm installing on a windows 2008 R2 server.  The problem details are as follows:

Perhaps you don't have .NET 4.0 installed.

I did take a look at the install state of the .NET framework and is seems to be installed correctly.

Make sure you've installed the full framework and not just the client profile version.  The error above would appear to indicate that you don't have .NET 4.0 installed.
