.NET Framework 4 Installation crash before start (0x000013EC) RRS feed

  • Question

  • .net 3.5 is successful installed, but when I want install .net 4 framework full package, the setup extracts files, but failed before install !

    I have extracted that log:

    OS Version = 5.1.2600, Platform 2, Service Pack 3
    OS Description = WinXP - x86 Professional Service Pack 3
    CommandLine = E:\8fd155476929d88acaf77ffe6722c6b3\\Setup.exe /q /log D:\dotnet4.log /x86 /x64
    TimeZone = GMT Daylight Time
    Initial LCID = 1033
    Using Simultaneous Download and Install mechanism
    Operation: Installing
    Package Name = Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Setup
    Package Version = 4.0.30319
    User Experience Data Collection Policy: UserControlled

    Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x000013EC), "A StopBlock was hit or a System Requirement was not met." (Elapsed time: 0 00:00:10).


    I have the latest Windows Installer, but Internet Explorer IS NOT installed (and I DON'T want internet explorer !). 

    How can I install .Net 4.0 framework ?

  • Hi Scrat789,

     

    Thank you for your post.

     

    From your post, you tried to install .NET Framework 4 via a web installer, so, first, I recommend you try to install a standalone version of .NET Framework 4: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17718

     

    Second, based on download page, you will find the prerequisite of .NET Framework 4:

    ·         Windows Installer 3.1 or later

    ·         Internet Explorer 5.01 or later

    I know you have not installed IE on your machine, but I think you should install it so as to install .NET Framework 4.

     

    I hope this helps.

  • The complete install logs should reveal *which* system requirement is not being met.

    Please do the following:

    Collect the install logs with this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=it&id=12493

    After you run Collect.exe, you'll find vslogs.cab in your %temp% directory. Upload vslogs.cab to a public site, like SkyDrive, then post the link here.

    OS Version = 6.1.7600, Platform 2
    OS Description = Win2K8R2 - x64 Standard Edition
    OS Version Information

  • This is for Asif999 (and this is why you need your own thread)

    Please start your own thread. Potential responders will be unlikely to see your question buried in this thread.

    However, I'm looking at your logs and I can already see that your situation is very different from that of scrat. You actually have an install log for .NET Framework 4.0.

    Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x000013EC), "A StopBlock was hit or a System Requirement was not met." (Elapsed time: 0 00:00:19).

    Did you ever have a beta version of .NET 4.0 on this machine?

    You may want to read through this thread:

    You can also try the following:

    Manually extract the contents of dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe to a folder on your hrd drive. You will find Setup.exe in the root folder. Execute Setup.exe from the command prompt As Administrator as follows:

    Setup.exe /x64

  • This is for scrat789:

    I suspect the fact that IE is not installed is affecting your system. Actually, I have no idea how you removed it, but I suggest you reinstall it. You don't have to use it, or make it your default browser.

    There is no install log for .NET 4. Only the decompression log, so I can only guess what the installer finds missing. Hence my opinion above.

    You can try the following:

    Manually extract the contents of dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe to a folder on your hrd drive. You will find Setup.exe in the root folder. Execute Setup.exe from the command prompt As Administrator as follows:

    Setup.exe /x86

  • Thanks for your answer.

    I have already try to extract the contents and lunch directly Setup.exe /x86 command (in cmd and in explorer), but same result... failed before install.

  • Sorry for using an existing question to post my issue, I just thought that since this was the same issue I could post it here and the answer would help scat789 as well,never intended to hijack this thread.

    anyways... we tried extracting and executing the Setup.exe through the command prompt as the administrator but we still get the same error.

    If the filename is "dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe", this method of execution is completely insane, but worked for the error 0x000013EC. However, the installer should have the ability to determine the machine's architecture.
