I am facing this issue with Net Framework 4.5.2 security patches that won't install through windows update.

kb3037581, kb3023224, kb303035490

 

I decided to download these files through Microsoft and manually install them, but it gives a message that "installation guide can not be used or it has been blocked by other conditions on the computer"

 

I wanted to ask how can I search/find out for what is eventually blocking for these installation.

Thank you for the link louis.

 

I noticed in that link you provided that there is version 4.6, is it wise to manually install this version upon 4.5.2?

If you are doing the updates through Microsoft Update tool.  Then you might try running this and retrying. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/open-the-windows-update-troubleshooter I Haven't always had a ton of luck with it but once in a while it will catch a weird update gone wrong and will reset the updater altogether.

Since I have had absolutely no issues with MS.NET or critical updates for it...I can't really say what you should do.  I just do the automatic critical updates, with no problems.

.NET Framework 4.6 is still in a preview state (like Windows 10). So I would stick to 4.5.2, which is the latest official release for now and then upgrade to 4.6 automatically via the Windows Update once it gets pushed out. Follow the instructions below please.

  • Download MiniToolBox and move the executable file to your Desktop;
  • Right-click on MiniToolBox.exe and select Spcusrh.pngRun as Administrator;
  • Check the following options:
    • List Installed Programs;
    • List Last 10 Event Viewer Errors;
    • List Devices - Only Problems;
    • List Users, Partitions and Memory size;

  • Once this is done, click on Go and wait for the scan to complete;
  • Once the scan is complete, a log will open. Please copy/paste the content of the output log in your next reply;

FWIW:  Just a note...it's not necessary to install every version of  NET Framework that is released....the only reason it is installed at all is the fact that the various versions may be used by program developers in the building of drivers, programs, and games.

 

If a given program, driver, game..;requires a given version of MS.NET, it will be noted as a prerequisite for using said program/game/driver.

 

To install every version of NET...is somewhat off-the-mark, IMO.

Plus, you wouldn't be able to install an older version of .NET Framework if you have a newer one installed. You cannot install .NET Framework 4 if you have 4.5 installed, it'll throw an error. Hence why if you want to install an older version of .NET Framework for whatever reason there is (since it's useless as Louis said), you need to uninstall all of them and install them from the lowest to the highest version.
