Cannot install .NET Framework 3.0 (WCF Error) RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hey all, I'm new to these forums.
    To start off, I'm running XP SP2 Home Edition.

    My first question deals with the .net Framework 3.0 installation.
    Every time I try to install it, I get an error 1603 that says that Windows Communication Foundation is not installed.

    [07/06/09,19:59:05] Windows Communication Foundation: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Windows Communication Foundation. MSI returned error code 1603
    [07/06/09,20:05:35] WapUI: [2] DepCheck indicates Windows Communication Foundation is not installed.

    Looking some more, I found that I need to uninstall IIS to continue with this. However, IIS doesn't appear to be installed at all (doesn't show up in Add/Remove Windows Components)

    I can get 2.0 running fine with SP2, but I need 3.5 in order to run certain applications compiled on someone elses's computer. They don't know much about their setup, but I suspect that they had .net 3.5 while running Vista.

    I've gotten this app running sporatically in the past, but it seems that I need to correct something in the .NET framework in order to continue to use it.

    Thanks for the help!

  • Hi NateTheGreat555,

    Could you please try to use collect tool to collect the log files of .NET Framework 3.5 full package from your "%temp%" folder?

    Thanks
