I receive the 'main stage' error message when installing or starting Samsung Kies. How do I fix this?

Last Update date : 2014.11.24



If you obtain a 'Main Stage' error message while trying to either install or run Samsung Kies then please go to the Microsoft website and then search for, download and install the latest .Net Framework service pack. After installing the service pack restart your computer and then re-attempt to install or run Kies.


If you still encounter the error after re-installing the .Net Framework service pack then please click here for contact details for Samsung's customer support services for further assistance.
