I need to install .Net Framework 1.1 for a job I am working on.
I recently upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP Home Edition.
Everything is running great except I cannot install .Net Framework 1.1

I did have it on my computer (from a previous install on Windows ME
and it ran fine) I did get it to download once while in Windows Xp but
then it wouldn't install.
This is all after I upgraded to Windows XP (which I had paid a techie
from HP to do for me).

I have tried installing it from microsoft.com, and a CD
but to no avail.

I get various error messages:

From Donetfx
Inernal Error 2908

And...Erroe 1935. An error occured during the installation
of assembly Microsoft.

Just to let you know
-I uninstalled the download and rebooted and tried again and again.
-I wasn't running any anti-virus or spyware software at time
of installation
-When I tried to dowload my Microsoft Updates, everything
installed correctly (not high priority) EXCEPT .Net Framework 1.1
was not installed and it did not give me a reason why.

I cannot work until this issue is resolved and though I don't expect
you to fix it, any steering in the right direction, would be a GREAT thing.

Thank you for reading this far.

This might be related to the fact that you can't (easily) install IIS (MS internet server services) on XP Home. Only because it is disabled in sysoc.inf, though (XP Pro doesn't have this problem).
Here is a link to a post that quotes the workaround for installing IIS web services on xp home, in case that is the problem and is necessary for the framework install.


Good luck. :thumbsup:

Thank you for your offers of help. It is very much
I did get the help I needed
to download and install .Net Framework 1.1

It was a Removal tool to fix .NET Framework install failures
I downloaded it and it worked instantly.
I am including it here as I searched for a long long time
to get help....and maybe it will help others with the same problem.

Many thanks to you both for posting a response to my query.

All the best,
