NextFem Designer at the moment supports the import of simple datasets containing a single integer value for each node or element for each step. That was supposed to work in conjunction with the procedure009.tcl file given with our program (look for the checkProc parameter to be passed to the functions). The current capability seems quite limiting with respect to the use you want to make of it. We cannot however exclude a wider support for additional datasets capabilities in the future.
As a side note you may want to reduce the number of fibers monitored to those where yield is likely to occur, like the top and tips of the flanges or the midpoint of the web if shear also plays a big role.
NextFEM designer gives basic support for importing Sap2000 models, e.g. basic section shapes but not file imported ones.
To fix this, you can go to Edit/Sections and, for each not imported properly section, do the following:
1. click the section you need to edit
2. click the button “Edit properties”
3. click the button “Clear all”
4. In the tab “Basic Properties” click “Box” and set the correct dimensions in the region highlighted in red in the attached picture
5. click OK and you’re done
Hope this helps

.Net Framework 4.5 should be backwards compatible, so this should be the cause of the message you see.
The point is, once you close the .Net Installer that gives you the message, does the installation process go on without any other issue?
