When I run the installer, it take about 10 miniutes of "installing" before there is an error, the error is below.
I've seen that there are threads describing a similar error with earlier drops, but I didn't see any mention of a way out.
I'm running on XP, I've run the removal tool but still I get the error. Has anyone else installed this drop on XP?
Is anyone else having this install problem with XP or other?

I'm going to cross my fingers and try to install it on a Win Server 2003 inside VMWare.

Work around for common install problem when moving to WinFX Beta 2 from WinFX February CTP
By any chance,you have SQL server 2005 express edition on this machine?

I used the sc delete and the installer has completed without reporting an error. I did not try this at first because the error message was very different.
I sent the files from temp just in case they are still of interest.
I'm pretty sure I had Sql Express previously installed, but at the moment I have Sql 2005 Dev Edition.

I ran into the same problem moving from Feb CTP to Beta 2.
The sc delete.. did not work for me, and I have SQL Express installed.

Thursday, May 25, 2006 4:55 PMGiven that there are other cases that the sc delete did not resolve I removed the answer setting on the earlier post.

Thanks to Guy Burstein for providing all the info to trouble shoot the problem,If you are experiencing winfx beta2 installation problem,please try following two work arounds
KNOWN PROBLEM #1:
KNOWN PROBLEM #2
Please check previous version of WCF was completely uninstalled. To fix, you will need to remove all references to version 126.96.36.199 of System.ServiceModel from the root web.config file (c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\config\web.config)
How to check:
open c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\config\web.config and search for "System.ServiceModel",and if you find any System.ServiceModel entrees, check the version, if the version is 188.8.131.52(Version=184.108.40.206),remove that line from web.config
On one of the machines, we found following line causing the problem, we deleted following line (since it is version 2.0), and after this change, we are able to install winfx
<add path="*.svc" verb="*" type="System.ServiceModel.Channels.HttpHandler, System.ServiceModel, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"
Tuesday, May 30, 2006 2:41 PMI also get error code 1603 when I try to install Beta2.
I prevoiously ran Feb CTP on a W2K3 SP1 machine, that never ran any SQL Server Editions.
I tried the above mentioned steps, but none of them helped.
