Failed to install .NET Framework 4.6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    After many attempts to install the .NET Framework 4.6, I'm out of ideas. 

    I'm running Windows 7 SP1, and have .NET 4.5.2 previously installed. 

    I have tried reparing, uninstalling and cleaning the previous .NET installations without result. 

    The collected logs are located here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=3E974F2D490A8E2E!124&authkey=!ABH1UOVRMJAMuLI&ithint=file%2czip

    Best regards

  • Hello, 

    I tried the registry solution prior to contacting you with no success. 

    What did the trick for me was to rename the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\S-1-5-18 folder. This was suggested in one of the countless forum message posts I visited.

  • An update: 

    I cannot reinstall .NET 4.5.2 anymore, that installer fails with the same error message as 4.6. 

    Please advise on how to proceed ASAP as my developer PC is no longer functional.

  • From your install log, the core error is "INSTALLMESSAGE_ERROR [Error 997.Error 997.Overlapped I/O operation is in progress."
