Your startup element says your code only supports NETFX v2.x based CLRs.

Thanks, that fixes the scenario where .NET 3.5 is enabled on Windows 7.
When it is disabled, I get the same error message with a different error
code: "Loading prerequisite bootstrapper application because managed host could not be loaded, error: 0x80070490." To review, this is with my BA targeting 3.5, .NET 3.5 disabled but NET 4.5 installed. I should be able to run my 3.5 BA against the 4.5 runtime, correct? An excerpt of my current bootstrappercore.config:
<supportedRuntime version="v3.5" />
<supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />
