NETframework v2.0.50727 problem

    Question

  • Received reply from Microsoft Answers. Method 1 didn't help, Method 2 (guided steps for clean boot) not available, to try later..tried again same message....here's the problem...2 Windows updates missing probably the cause. They are: Security Update for Microsoft NET framework 2.0.SP2 on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB2539631) and (KB2572073) both failed when I tried to download through Windows Updates....How do I install both? Also by error I had installed NETframework 4 and I have removed so I have no netframework left on computer. Please help!

  • Did you mean to post this to an existing thread, where the problem is described?

    If this is a new post, please provide pertinent details.

    What is your Windows version? Exactly which .NET Framework are you trying to install (please provide the download link)?

    As for the security update, if it's for .NET Framework 2.0 and, as you say " I have no netframework left on computer", the update cannot install.

    If you have Windows XP, do the following:

    Download the standalone installer for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 here:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

    Before running the installer, clear out your %temp% directory and disable your AV software.

    Run the installer from an account with FULL administrative rights.

    If the install fails, please share your install logs as follows:

    Please collect your install logs logs with this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E0DA314F-6216-4A18-BC6B-7D29CF83AF20&displaylang=e&displaylang=en

    After you run Collect.exe, you'll find vslogs.cab in your %temp% directory. Please upload vslogs.cab to a public site, like SkyDrive, and post the link here.

  • Hello pvdg42....got your reply and thanks yet I am not computer savvy..I want to install the NETframework 2, the one that came with Windows XP..I have Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 3, 32 bit version. I originally sent a NETframework 2 problem installing a program...that's where I ran into error message V2.0.50727..when I tried to install NETframework 2 from Microsoft downloads then I got two Security Updates failed to install (KB2539631 and KB2572073)....I don't know my way around the computer well and not an advanced user..is there a simple way to do this? Thanks in advance.

  • Just wanted to add...Microsoft Answers suggested Method 1: to download NETFramework 2 which wouldn't work with those two failed Security updates mentioned in other reply, and Method 2 was a clean boot...and I can't get into the Microsoft clean boot download since a message appears saying to try later. Thanks

  • Windows XP did not come with any .NET Framework.

    First, we need to determine if you have any .NET Frameworks installed, and which versions they are. To do that, you need to run the .NET Framework Verification Tool, found here:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx

    Post the first ~40 lines of output from the tool here.

    Then, you need to follow the procedure I gave you earlier:

    Download the standalone installer for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 here:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

    Before running the installer, clear out your %temp% directory and disable your AV software.

    Run the installer from an account with FULL administrative rights.

    If the install fails, please share your install logs as follows:

    Please collect your install logs logs with this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E0DA314F-6216-4A18-BC6B-7D29CF83AF20&displaylang=e&displaylang=en

    After you run Collect.exe, you'll find vslogs.cab in your %temp% directory. Please upload vslogs.cab to a public site, like SkyDrive, and post the link here.

    If you do not feel confident following these procedures, you will need to seek the assistance of a local tech who can do it for you.
