  • I want to install .NET Framework 3.5 on my computer, but I experienced a setup error after I have installed it.

    How do I successfully install .NET Framework 3.5 without seeing a setup error at the end of the installation?

  • No need for the logs. Your Windows version tells the story.

    Windows 7 installs .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 through 3.5 SP1 as an integral part of the OS. Therefore, you cannot install 3.5 yourself on a Windows 7 system.

    You will find .NET Framework 3.5.1 (i.e. 2.0/3.0/3.5) listed as a Windows Feature. Open Control Panel->Programs and Features, then click on Turn Windows features on and off.

    Find Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 in the features list. Expand the node and enable all subfeatures.

  • Please provide the following:

    1. What is your Windows version and service pack level?

    2. Please provide complete install logs as follows:

    Please collect your install 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.

  • Hi pvdg42,

    1. My Windows version is Windows 7 and I do not have any service packs installed at the moment.

    2. For some reason, I could not submit my reply with the link to the vslogs.cab file on SkyDrive without getting an unexpected error message.

    I do not know why this is so.

    Could you please offer another solution that enables me to post a link to the vslogs.cab file on SkyDrive?

    Maybe I could send you the link in a private message instead?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Best regards,

    Devmos

  • Hi pvdg42,

    I'm trying to post the link to the vslogs.cab file on SkyDrive in a separate reply post, to avoid the unexpected error message.
