.net Framework 4 completely uninstalled and will not reinstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wanted to play a new game I got for x-mas. It requires .net 4. I couldn't get it to repair, it wouldn't accept a security update via windows update so I uninstalled it and tried to install the standalone. These are the error messages as follows.

    OS Version = 6.1.7601, Platform 2, Service Pack 1
    OS Description = Windows 7 - x64 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1
    CommandLine = C:\a3eddee22a4d8515f661ad70\\Setup.exe /x86 /x64
    TimeZone = Central Standard Time
    Initial LCID = 1033
    Using Simultaneous Download and Install mechanism
     
     
     
    Operation: Installing
    Package Name = Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Setup
    Package Version = 4.0.30319

    Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x80070643), "Fatal error during installation. " (Elapsed time: 0 00:01:45).

    Clicking the MSI log gives me a 50 page readout of gibberish. I am not a programmer why the hell isn't this a more user friendly software?

  • First, your game probably requires the full .NET Framework 4.0.

    Download the standalone installer for .NET Framework 4.0 here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=17718

    Before running the installer, please do the following:

    1. Clear out your %temp% directory. (Click the Windows 7 Start Orb, then type %temp% in the search box. The search results will show a Temp folder. Click on the Temp folder to open it in Windows Explorer, then delete the entire contents)

    2. Apply irarab's fix as shown in the answer in this thread:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/netfxsetup/thread/3cc78f3c-d782-4f90-9035-1b6675890af7/

    "I went to "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET" there is a directory called "assembly".

    I looked in the directory and found some subdirectories with lots of old dot net 4 files. I renamed the directory assembly2 and tried to install Dot Net 4 and it worked!!!!

    (You can't delete the assembly directory unless you take ownership of it but you can rename it.)"

    3. Disable your AV software.

    4. Run the standalone installer As Administrator.

  • .NET framework 4 comes in 2 ways. one is Full profile and the other is Client profile. Since Full profile has large MB size, Microsoft is also offering Client profile which only contain all the most needed files.

    You can download them all from following link.

    Still if you can't install it, may be you should do a windows update. It will fix it for you.

    Happy Coding.

  • Thank you, this seemed to work. I'm not sure which aspect of the instructions or if all was required, but it worked finally.
