Hey guys, I'm having a bit of a problem with .NET 3.5. I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit on a Lenovo 3000 J200 9690-A12.

The problem started when I decided to reinstall .NET 3.5 because of an error in my Adobe Flash Professional CS 5.5 installation. To be on the safe side, I decided to also delete the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NetFramework\InstallRoot. I couldn't get it to reinstall, so I searched for what seems to be the default value of the previously mentioned registry key. I then entered this value, C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework, as the registry key. I still couldn't install .NET 3.5. Whenever I install it manually with the downloaded installer, I get halfway through the installation, and then I get a crash report stating setup.exe has stopped working. In addition, the .NET installer states:

Setup Error
An error occurred during setup. Installed files have been removed from your computer. For known errors and troubleshooting information, see the online Readme. For error information, see Error Log.


I get no error code. When installing it with Windows Update, I just get an error after a while. One thing I've noticed, however, is that if I view installed updates in the Control Panel, I see an update titled Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (KB963707). Should that be there, since I don't have .NET 3.5 installed? When I try to uninstall it, I get error that says:

This action is only valid for products that are currently installed.


Please excuse my ignorance of anything Windows, since I haven't used Windows for over a year now, only Linux. :)
