Morning,

Dell Dimension 2400; internet surfing; microsoft office stuff....

XP home Version 5.1 (build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr)

Windows is set up to search and alert for updates. This most recent one (Network Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1; KB953297) continuously fails to install (tried at least six times over two weeks).

When I finally looked it up today, to my surprise, this upgrade was published in August 2004!

So a couple of questions to point me in the right direction:

Why did it take so long for Windows to discover I was missing this update; Why is it failing to install; Should I be concerned the PC doesn't have this update?

Thanks

Good morning :thumbsup:.

Well...I can only guess.

Since that version of MS.NET...there have been multiple other versions.

I suspect that any program which would have used the older version...now uses one of the newer versions.

If you have no newer versions installed on your system, forget my theory :flowers:.

And remember...nothing that a human makes...and, certainly, no human...is perfect. Things go wrong with each of us daily and the same can be said for Windows :trumpet:.

With Windows, I employ the "no harm, no foul" rule.

FWIW: I would unisntall any version of MS.NET that might appear in Add/Remove Programs...and then download/install from the following: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

Nothing's easy...

Can't uninstall 1.1 because I'm missing netfx.msi.

Is it OK to install 3.5 without uninstalling the earlier version?

Interesting read at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/200.../24/219764.aspx, the first three paragraphs. Partially explains your 1.1 thing.

I would not worry about 1.1 being installed, since I'm fairly sure that nothing uses it these days. As explained above, the message re retfx.msi...is one of those quirky things that happen in life.

Having 1.1 installed won't hurt anything, won't help anything.

I would just install the 3.5, SP1 package and then go to Windows Update for security-related patches/updates. Historyically, it has never made any difference if a user installed each new package in addition to existing installed packages of MS.NET...but 3.5 is the first rollout that seems to be cumulative. It will reinstall parts of earlier packages, but it won't go back to 1.1.

This article did allow me to recreate a netfx.msi, but it still didn't like it because it wasn't the original I guess...

3.5 now installed and updated, but, seems I'm destined to be annoyed by the 1.1 update reminder and subsequent install failure.

Thanks for the help

You can always choose 'Do not show this update again'
and turn it off in Windows Update.

You always have the option to restore hidden updates.
