Hi.

I have a Dell Precision Workstatioin T5400 with a 2.33 Gig Xeon processor, 3 gig of ram running windows xp service pack 3 and on an small business server exchange network.

I reboot my computer when I leave at night and every day when I come in I have an error message. I have updates that won't install and I am not sure why:

Here is the error message and the details:

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to stop these issues. Are they related?

Thanks.

VisualStudio relies on MS.NET...either/both could be damaged.

If I still had MS.NET 1.1 on my systems...I would uninstall it and replace with Version 3.5, SP1...and see if it clicks.

Damaged programs are normally overcome by removing them via Add/Remove Programs...and then reinstalling them.

When I go to Add/Remove Programs it shows I have MS.NET 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.0 sp2, and 3.5 sp 1. Should I remove earlier versions or at least the 1.1 version?

You could try removing just 1.1...not sure you will be able to, although I think you should be able.

There is a tool that will remove all versions you have listed (which is what I did) and then I just reinstalled Version 3.5, SP1. Note that reinstalling/installing 3.5, SP1 will also install elements from 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/deta...;displaylang=en.

The tool is Dotnetfix Cleanup Tools - http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live....leanup_tool.zip.

thank you. I used the clean up tool and removed all versions and then I reinstalled them one at a time. It seems to have fixed the problem.
