Framework 3.5 SP1 Setup.exe reported error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I tried to install the Framework 3.5 SP1 on a Windows 2008 production machine.
    I downloaded the complete package, then ran the installer.

    During installation, Setup.exe reported an error (please see below). However the installer terminated normally and said that the installation was successful. It seems that the Service Packs for 2.0 and 3.0 installed successfully at least I see in the setup event, the two events

    The Windows update "Update for Windows (KB948609)" was successfully installed. (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\WUSA.exe" "e:\b22b327ec39ca64c03f5f8\wcu\dotNetFramework\dotnetmsp\x86\NetFX2.0-KB948609-v6001-x86.msu" /quiet /norestart")

    and

    The Windows update "Update for Windows (KB948610)" was successfully installed. (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\WUSA.exe" "e:\b22b327ec39ca64c03f5f8\wcu\dotNetFramework\dotnetmsp\x86\NetFX3.0-KB948610-v6001-x86.msu" /quiet /norestart")

    When I look at "Programs and Features" in the Control Panel, I see Framework 3.5 SP1 installed.
    I am lost. What is installed and what not? The problem I had is :

    Product
    setup.exe

  • Hi luckman212,

    Yes I found a solution.

    If I remember well my problem was that I used an english system with french regional settings (actually it there is a hint in the release notes about problemes with localized settings). I never thought about installing the french language files (as I don't need them - I only use the regional settings in order to get numbers, dates and currencies displayed with french settings). 
    So what I did was to install the french language files (I just installed them but did not to switch to). Then I installed the framework again and it worked like a charm.

    Hope this helps,
    Christoph

  • Did this solution work for anyone else?  I am not aware that I am using any non-English regional settings, but I am having the exact same troubles.  It seems unlikely that installing the french language pack will fix it.  Did anyone else try this?

  • That solution did not help me (thanks anyway) -- I still am faced with this issue and am unable to (re)install the .net framework packages on this person's laptop.  It's quite troubling because I am facing a full wipe & reinstall of the entire OS and all applications.  This time consuming task would take at least 4-6 hours!  If there are any possible alternative methods to solve this I am all ears.

  • I am still in the same boat.  Someone even told me that installing Visual Studio 2008 would solve the issue, but that didn't fix it either.  It seems like we have a long list of things that don't work.  I would love to hear from someone who knows a trick that does work.

  • Hi gprayback and luckman212,

    There must be several installation problems then giving the same error message if it even occurs on machines without any non-English regional settings... 
    To double-check, I tried again this morning and experience the following behavior.

    1) Clean install of Windows 2008. Choose as language "English" and as Time and Currency settings "French (France)" (and french keyboard)
    2) Run Windows Update
    3) All updates will install properly except one : Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

    This is clearly a bug of the installer, at least  the error message should be more than cryptic: unkown error (one can probably find a more precise description digging into the logfiles but I did not try this morning - see my first message) 

    The following works:
    1) Clean install of Windows 2008. Choose as language "English" and as Time and Currency settings "French" (and french keyboard)
    2) Go to the control panel, regional settings, "Install or uninstall display languages" and add the language fr-fr (the language files are available for windows 2008 as a download from microsoft)
    3) Run Windows Update
    4) All updates will install properly including Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

    Of course you don't need to reinstall - just add the language and run the updater again. And of course it is not related to french. If you use german as time and currency setting you should install the german language packs, etc. This is hinted upon in the readme files.

    Please notice that I did not try on Vista and as I said above there are probably other reasons which may lead to this error...

  • I had the same error and this fixed the problem after searching and trying many things.
    They key to finding my problem us that I also could not see Roles in Server Manager.

    Fix: Run the System Update Readiness Tool (Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2008)
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

     This tool took about 30 minutes to run. I was then able to run the .Net Framework installation without error.

    If the above tool does not fix it, it may tell you what the problem is, so check the log:
    %systemroot%\logs\CBS\checkSUR.log

     Good luck. Very frustrating error.
