  • Try these steps:

    1. Download a fresh copy of the standalone installer for .NET Framework 4.0:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=17718

    2. Before running the installer, apply irarab's fix as follows:

    "I went to "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET" there is a directory called "assembly".

    I looked in the directory and found some subdirectories with lots of old dot net 4 files. I renamed the directory assembly2 and tried to install Dot Net 4 and it worked!!!!

    (You can't delete the assembly directory unless you take ownership of it but you can rename it.)"

    Also, clear your %temp% directory and disable your AV software.

    3. Run the standalone installer from step 1 As Administrator.

    If the install fails, provide complete install logs as follows:

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

  • Hi Edge42,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     

    The error code 0xC8000408, it means “Unable to access the file.”.

     

    I recommend you try MVP’s suggestions first.

     

    Second, you can try to extract dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe by some tools like WinRAR. Then try to run setup.exe directly.

     

    Third, please copy the dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe to any other folder, then check if you can install it correctly.

     

    If all the suggestions do not work, please collect the fresh logs via the steps MVP mentioned.

     

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to let me know.

     

    Best Regards,
