Hi -
Not sure if this area is the best, but since it is on my Windows 7 I thought it should begin here.
I have been trying to install .NET 4 on my Toshiba Satellite laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium installed) without any luck.

From the start . . . There was a M/soft security update for .NET 4 framework that came through a while back and would never install. I asked M/soft why and they just kept feeding the link to me for the update. The trouble that I now find is that .NET 4 was never installed in the first place. It is not preinstalled on Win7, like 3.5 is.
I have been to M/soft sites and attempted to download but it always fails during installing.

Next step was to take the .NET 4 from my XP Pro SP3, load it on a frash drive and try to transfer from there. It still failed to install.
I have .NET 3.5 installed (it comes with Win7), so if this was bad then my idea was to uninstall 3.5 and reinstall. That went very easy and good.
Next try .NET 4 again and again and Etc. Etc. Etc. and still no luck with download or transfer of this version.

This also leads to the next point that the .NET4 update is sitting in updates waiting (and asking) to be installed at shutdown (as all good M/soft updates do).

Anyone got any ideas on this 'little' problem -

Extra - Running M.S.E antivirus and Windows firewall. Comodo was removed as this always wants to block, or delay, all updates.
MBAM and SAS scans show no problems and I cannot find any bad installed programs (Never use Torrent etc.).

Thank You -

What's the update KB number?
Did you try to download standalone file from MS site and install it that way?

Hi Broni -
This is the download I have been trying to install direct from Microsoft. Unless I can first install this then I cannot install anything to add to it, like updates.
Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer)
The installer says that it should take only a few mins, but after it seems like 75% it always fails and just ends.
I have had Anoop from M/soft Support reply to a request for help, but all he did was tell me to use the installer above.
The same program as above can also be taken off my XP and put on a flash drive and also fail to install

Thank You -

Edited for spelling -

Let's try cleaning up your .NET framework...

Download, unzip, and run the dotnetfx_cleanup_tool. It will remove the .NET framework from your computer so that we can reinstall it later.

After running this cleanup tool, it should ask you to reboot. Please do so.

Next, download and install dotnetfx35.exe. This will reinstall the .NET framework onto your computer. Note: this is a large file, and could take some time to download depending on the speed of your internet connection.

After another reboot, download and install dotnetfx35setup.exe. This will update the .NET framework to version 3 SP1.

If you need any more updates for the .NET framework, Windows Update should find it for you (assuming updates are set to automatically download and install).

Step 1 went OK and no problem, but now i get this - -

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

This is displayed when I try to access Next, download and install dotnetfx35.exe.
So fat 3 attempts at this step and it still says "Cannot display the page ? ?
Nothing is wrong with the connection, as I have posted here -

Thank You -
EDIT - I have just been and signed into G2G site and MBAM forums without a problem, so it Must be the link ??
Also there was no "Ask to reboot" but I did anyway -

[attachment=106311:Broni file.JPG]
Attached is screen shot from my XP -
Can this be put on a flash drive and moved over ??
EDIT - The first program may have disabled something ?
EDIT 2 - No reply so I am loading it on a 4G flash drive. I think the first program disabled my access to some M/soft sites.
Next time instruct to Download and Save this program first, then run the first program :wink:

A minor problem as the download is recognised as an XP download as I install ?
Not sure if it is fully installing.
I need to go out for several hours and may need to play with this in about 4 or 6 hours -

Hi again -
I mentioned a small problem with the transfer earlier.
Now I discover the Flash is FAT32, but my Win7 is NTFS, and will not accept the cross over of the file with this flash (my only one).
When I put the flash into the Win 7 and open System, Hardware, Device Manager, it shows as a problem device.
However in the XP it shows as OK ?
Can it be put on a CD ? as this is my next step. Appempting to start this now.

That shouldn't be an issue.
My Vista is NTFS as well and I use all kind of FAT32 USB sticks.

Yes, you can use CD.
