Hi, all.

I've got an XP SP3 build desktop siting on my repair desk. It had a bad stick of RAM in it, causing lots of BSODs and failed installs and upgrades. Solved that, ran CHKDSK /R to correct the directories and now updates nicely.

However, in installing the newest ATI Catalyst Center, I discovered that .NET Framework is not installed on this machine. I did download the standalone installable packages, but they always crash and roll back. I've done my research and have manually removed everything I could. I ran the >NET Framework cleaner that is all over the MSDN blogs and the NET framework verfier (all editions not installed).

So, I am sitting here with a clean computer and no way to get NET framework on it.

Can someone offer me the way to the promised land?

Thanks,
OneRing2Rule

What version of NET are you trying to install?

You should install the Framework 3.5, SP1 download, then install the Catalyst package.

I would uninstall the ATI package, if it is now installed...install 3.5, SP1...then install the ATI package.

NET Framework 3.5, SP1

If you get an error, post the exact error message and the details of what point it appears.

First, thanks for helping me, really.

Okay, I uninstalled all of the ATI Radeon package except for the driver (had to see the screen, right?) and rebooted. Then, I downloaded the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 from your link. I ran the install, here's what I got and I'll reply again with the install text.

I don't ever use install logs :), it should not be necessary.

EDIT: The error message onscreen is more important, IMO...than the logs you attached.

Hello,

Do you get a "failed to install" error message?

A while back I had problems installing the .NET framework updates. I even took the drastic measure of uninstalling ALL of the .NET frameworks that were installed. I could download the files, but it failed at some point in installing.

I finally, after many hours and two days of swearing, figured out what the problem was. A specific service was disabled. If that service is disabled, the .NET framework will not install.

Right click on My Computer, click on Manage then Services. Once the Services list populates, check for the following service which should be near the top:

.NET Runtime Optimization Service

Under Startup Type, see if it says Disabled. If it does, right click on the service name and click on Properties.

Change start up type to manual. Once that has been done, then start the service. .NET framework should now install.

Thanks for the help, but I'm running XP on this box. Your service isn't part of the OS. It's not there. Prolly is on Vista and 7.

The mentioned service is indeed on XP.

It is not native but unsure which NETframework version installs it.

That is likely related to the failed install attempts of later vers.\service packs. I do`t recall seeing it on my one PC that does have NET installed until a fairly recent update.

So unfortunately the suggested fix will not work in this instance.

Was not able to view your provided video. So I was not aware of the Visual Studio 8 error.

Is it shown in Add\remove programs?

Have zero experience with the program but would seem to be NET dependent. Perhaps the issue needs to be addressed looking at Visual Studio first. Then working backwards to NET.

Added: From doing some Googleing it seem`s the two are interdependent. Or at least NET is needed to use Visual Studio.

It is not native but unsure which NETframework version installs it.


@ThunderZ: Service installs w/ 2.0 or 2.0 SP1.

@OneRing: Take a look here, the problem may be w/MSI software: When you try to install an update for the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5, you may receive Windows Update error code "0x643" or Windows Installer error code "1603" (I noticed Error Code 1603 in one of the logs you attached)

Windows Update error code "0x643" and Windows Installer error code "1603" are generic error codes. Typically, these error codes mean that the update was not installed. These errors codes are usually caused by a corruption in the .NET Framework installation or by an inconsistency on the MSI database state.
