  • Hi Spades0145,

     

    Thank you for posting.

     

    For error code "1603", it is a common message that means "fatal error during installation".

    Could you please help me to try the following steps for further troubleshooting?

    1. Download .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (Full Package) which will install .NET 2.0 with SP2, 3.0 with SP2 and 3.5 with SP1.
    2. Use Cleanup tool to remove .NET Framework 3.5 >> 3.0 >> 2.0 in order

    3. Run the installer to install .NET 3.5 SP1
    4. If any problem occurs during the installation, use Collect tool to collect the log files for further troubleshooting.

    The steps to collect the log:
    - Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")
    - Install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (full package)
    - Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder
