.NET framework 4.0 installation error. (0x80070642) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok. I searched for a while, but I still can't get .NET to install.

    I am trying to install version 4.0.

    I downloaded it from HERE

    My computer has Windows 7 Starter. Yeah yeah it was included.

    The installer just starts, and when it's right about to finish, bam. 

    "An error was encountered

    Unspecified error"

    I checked out the log file, as was suggested in one of the previous questions.

    The error code at the end says:

    Installation failed with error code: (0x80070642), "User cancelled installation. "

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Apparently it was a matter of administrative privileges. I already fixed it, sorry for the trouble. It seems that even if the installer asks for the administrator's password, it still wont install correctly. So I changed the account types (there's two). And it ran smoothly. Again, sorry for the trouble.
