try to reinstall .NET 4, error I need to install WIC, that fails with error update.exe not valid

    Question

  • trying to do a clean install of .NET v4, installation starts then stops with a fatal error.  I look at the log file, this is where it hangs up:

     

    Action start 13:48:30: CA_Block_WIC_NotPresent_x86.
    MSI (s) (68:60) [13:48:30:593]: Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile -- You must install the 32-bit Windows Imaging Component (WIC) before you run Setup. Please visit http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=162643&clcid=0x409 to install WIC, and then rerun Setup.
    
    You must install the 32-bit Windows Imaging Component (WIC) before you run Setup. Please visit http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=162643&clcid=0x409 to install WIC, and then rerun Setup.
    Action ended 13:48:30: CA_Block_WIC_NotPresent_x86. Return value 3.


    So I follow the link in the log file, when trying to install WIC I get the "update\update.exe is not a valid Win32 Application".

    I can not find any info on how to fix this. 

    thanks for any asisstance.

  • Hi epiclife,

     

    Thank you for your post.

     

    Based on your description and error information, please check the following information.

    -          .NET Framework 4 is supported Windows 2003 family with SP2 or later.

    -          For Windows Server 2003, you should install Windows Imaging Component (WIC) on the target computer.

    32-bit Windows Imaging Component

    64-bit Windows Imaging Component

     

    See: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/5a4x27ek.aspx for more information.

     

    Best Regards

  • this did not help me. it was a circular reference right back into the same problem.

    circular reference back to same problem is "32-bit Windows Imaging Component" and this file, the one for english, wic_x86_enu.exe, if you download it does not work when you put it on your computer and run it.

    just give me the wic file that is 32 bit and is downloadable to be put on a stand alone computer

    AND THAT WORKS THE FIRST TIME.

    POST LINKS AND INSTRUCTIONS TO HERE AND TO MY EMAIL

    and put instructions so a moron can follow them with no circular references or links right back into the same problem.

    32-bit Windows Imaging Component (WIC) link that will work is "put link in here" and make sure that the link you reference is not a circular reference back to the same problem

    your webpage has instructions that do not make sense

    ******************************************************************

    Instructions

    1. Click the Download button at the top of this page to start the download.
    2. Do one of the following:
    - To start the installation immediately, click Run.
    - To copy the download to your computer for installation at a later time, click Save.

    *******************************************************************

    there is no download button at the TOP OF THE PAGE

    THERE ARE ONLY THESE DOWNLOAD BUTTONS and the one for english which is the third one down

    which is the one that does not work. you cannot load it on a computer.

  • Hi Donald, I think those 10 results are related to 10 languages given in drop down box, so i suggest u to install 3rd download i.e. 'win_x86_enu.exe'. I have installed it & its working.
