  • Hi Deborah,

    Thank you for your post.

    Some clarification with you:
    What's your OS?
    What's the exact error message you received during updating?

    As a try, could you please follow these steps for further troubleshooting?
    1. Download .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (Full Package)
    2. Use Cleanup tool to remove .NET Framework 3.5 >> 3.0 >> 2.0 in order
    3. Run the installer to install .NET 3.5 SP1 which will install .NET 2.0 SP2 and .NET 3.0 SP2 as prerequisite
    4. If any problem occurs during the installation of .NET 3.5 SP1, use Collect tool to collect the log files for further troubleshooting.
       - Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")
       - Install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 full package
       - Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder
         Collect tool:
       - Send file to me (
    5. After .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 has been well installed, please turn on Windows Update to install these updates again

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen
