    Question

  • ok im on vista and im trying to turn on the net. framework and the turn windows features on or off is not showing any programs on it
    i think i need it to install net. framework and i dont know why this is happening

    edit: yes i am trying to install .net framework 3.5 sp1 on to vista but i always get an error message:
    [08/11/09,14:29:34] Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0SP1 (CBS): [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0SP1 (CBS). MSI returned error code -2146762496
    [08/11/09,14:29:45] WapUI: [2] DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0SP1 (CBS) is not installed.

    Hi Jocgame,

    Do you mean that you cannot find the checkbox next to Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 as the following?



    If yes, it can be related to Vista.

    To install .NET Framework 3.5, we need .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0. However, we cannot distinguish whether .NET Framework 3.0 has been installed or not on your machine since this feature list was broken.

    You could try reparing Vista. If it doesn't work, for Vista issue, I would suggest you to consult it on Technet forum.

    Hope this helps. If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen

  • im not to sure what you mean by 'reparing vista'....
    so ive tryed the technet forum and i have had no results from the existing threads on the subject and i would like a better option than 'command prompt' or 'system restore' as these would not work (CP cant find regestry and system restore does not work)

  • Hi Jocgame,

    Sorry for delay. Thank you for your information. :)

    I found that Dr. Trips has posted one suggestion to how to do a repair of Vista in the following thread:
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/netfxsetup/thread/6f0a3273-0a8f-4405-8cbc-8cb17622af5c/
    I hope this can help you a lot.

    I can understand that it's not exactly what you want to hear. Or you could try posting this issue on Technet - Windows Vista Setup forum to get more useful help there. After your issue is solved, please try installing .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 again. If you have any concern during the installation, I'm willing to help you with that.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen
