.net 4.0 setup fails silently

    Question

  • Windows XP SP3, .NET 1-1, 2, 3, 3.5 all installed.

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/B/E/1BE39E79-7E39-46A3-96FF-047F95396215/dotNetFx40_Full_setup.exe

    When run normally it fails silently.  Run under DEPENDS.EXE I get "Second chance exception 0xC0000005 (Access Violation) occurred at address 0x00000000 by thread 3".

    Below is the only log I see generated.  Nothing too unusual here.  (I is the letter Windows assigned to my hard drive.  E, F, M, N, O, P, V are optical drives, card readers, etc.)  The indicated directory is created, but I see no sign that anything is ever extracted into it.  A new directory is created at every attempt.
