Error installing .NET Framework 3.0 SP1

    Question

  • Hello all,

    Three VMs have been built for me, with fully functional VS 2005. I installed Framework 3.0 successfuly on all. On two of the boxes I am successful in installing .NET framework 3.0 SP1, however one VM is failing with the following error:

    ===========
    Setup has detected that this computer does not meet the requirements to install this software. These requirements must be met before you can install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 SP1.

    MSXML 6.0 Parser

    MSXML must be installed before you start the installation process. Install MSXML and run setup again.
    =============

    But MSXML Parser 6.0 is installed. I can see it via control panel. I even deleted it and reinstalled it. Rebooted and tried again a few times. Same error. What could be the problem?

    Thanks in advance.

  • What is the Windows Version?
    Was there any error or abnormal things happen during the installation of MSXML?

    You can check event viewer to see if there is any errors (Start > Run > type "eventvwr").

    Also try Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to check if MSXML is in the list:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/9/d/e9d80355-7ab4-45b8-80e8-983a48d5e1bd/msicuu2.exe

    With the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility, you can remove a program's Windows Installer configuration information. You may want to remove the Windows Installer configuration information for your program if you experience installation (Setup) problems.
