Error when installing Net framework 3.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there,

    Today I tried installing Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition which sadly required 3.5 net framework to work, and got an error saying that an error has occured while installing the net framework. I tried searching the internet for solutions to the problem and noticed that there were many similar problems but I couldn't find any that matched mine so here am I asking for help.

    I tried completely uninstalling the net framework I had (2.0) using the Cleanup tool mentioned in another forum post. After that I tried installing the net frame again and I still got the error. 

    In another forum post I read about this Log Tool that checked my problem. I ran it and here is what I got:
    dd_dotnetfx35error.txt: [10/03/10,17:47:52] WIC Installer: [2] Error code 1603 for this component means "Fatal error during installation."
                                       [10/03/10,17:47:53] WIC Installer: [2] Setup Failed on component WIC Installer

    I googled these lines and went to a forum post saying that my WIC version needed upgrade and so I went to the Microsoft website to upgrade it, when I tried doing so I got a msg telling me that my version was newer. Then I tried following these instructions: and still nothing when I tried.

    Im running Windows XP SP3 and Ill be glad if you could help me.

    Also Im sorry if I did something wrong.
