.Net Nightmare - install problems RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi there

    Over the past few days I've been trying to install Visual Basic 2008 and Visual C# 2008, both express editions.  I've also tried an alternative (Sharp develop) to see if that would solve my problem but it's not.  I'm getting the same errors with all three packages:

    During the installation I get this:
    [Window Title]
    Microsoft Windows
    
    [Main Instruction]
    setup.exe has stopped working
    
    [Content]
    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
    
    [Close program]
    In the error logs I get this:
    [05/02/09,00:30:57] Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0SP1 (CBS): [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0SP1 (CBS). MSI returned error code 1

    [05/02/09,11:45:27] WapUI: [2] DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0SP1 (CBS) is not installed.
    
    I can't find a vista copy of the .net 2 framework anywhere, only x86.

    I don't have anything in my Control Panel > Programs > Windows Features (turn on/off) list so can't turn it on or off....

    At a complete loss here.  I'm getting extremely frustrated with Microsoft now and haven't a clue how to install the programs I need.


    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I've tried other solutions suggested on the board, including running
    reg delete HKLM\COMPONENTS /v StoreDirty /f
    in command prompt as admin.  It throws back the following message every time

    ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

     

    Thanks

  • Hi KaMaSm,

    I can understand that you failed to install Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition, Visual C# 2008 Express Edition and Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition.
    Let's begin with one product for troubleshooting.

    Could you please try to help me to use collect tool to collect the log files of the product from your "%temp%" folder?
    http://blogs.msdn.com/heaths/archive/2008/05/09/visual-studio-and-net-log-collection-utility.aspx

    Then compress them into a zip file and post a link back. You can upload your log files to SkyDrive and post the link back here.

    Steps:
    - Try to clean your "%temp%" folder
    - Install the product that you want
    - Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder

    Thanks

  • I'm having this same error (as are countless others) when trying to upgrade my .Net framework in Vista. I'm guessing somehow our Vista .Net 2.0 framework has been corrupted.

    The only thing that I've seen work on forum comments is to reinstall Vista entirely.

    Microsoft could fix this by packaging up a separate msu installable version of the .Net framework 2.0 SP1 that actually runs on Vista.  (The existing .Net 2.0 SP1 binary will not install on Vista)

    Unfortunately this thread did not work for me but maybe would help.

  • This is the error I was getting in my WSUS logs:

    2009-06-13 10:10:43, Info                  CBS    Mark store corruption flag because of package: Package_for_KB948609_client~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.0.6001.3053. hr: 0x800b0100

    And this was the error from the System Update Readiness log:

    I fixed the error by downloading the dotNet 3.5 SP1 full package, and extracting/unzipping the cabs manually to find the missing files and copy them into my registry manually.  Luckily the full cab for .Net 2.0 SP1 is contained deep within the dotNet 3.5 SP1 package, and I was able to find the missing .mum and .cat files directly within the cab packages, and copying them to the C:\Windows\Servicing\packages directory.  (some permissions stuff is needed to do this copy these files to the package directory as administrator, I followed the instructions here--search for the takeown command:
    http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=88382

    (the hardest of the missing files above to find within the cab was the bolded one, which was actually called "update.mum and update.cat" within the .cab file) 

    I'm not sure exactly how my files were removed from the registry, but this fixed my problem, and I was finally able to upgrade to .Net 3.5 SP1 and then finally Windows Vista SP2.
