  • Hi Preetam,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     

    According to your post, you failed to install .NET Framework 3.5. Could you please let me know what your OS and Service Pack level you have?

     

    First, I recommend you uninstall .NET Framework 2 first. On the command prompt, can you try and run the following: msiexec.exe /x {7131646D-CD3C-40F4-97B9-CD9E4E6262EF}

    This is the command to remove netfx 2.0 that is currently installed on your machine. Please give this a try.

     

    Second, I recommend you install .NET Framework 2 again. Download .NET Framework 2 from: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=19

    After you have reinstalled .NET Framework 2, please download .NET Framework 3.5 from here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=25150

     

    When you are attempting to install .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 3.5, please follow these steps:

    ·         Check if there are any anti-virus or antispyware applications running. Make sure they are turned off during installation.

    ·         Complete or dismiss Windows Updates before installation (but turn on Windows Update service).

    ·         Clean up your “%temp%” folder (Start>>Run>>%temp%)

    ·         Run the setup file with Administrator privileges: Right-click the installer > Run as administrator.

     

    If the problem still exists after these steps, could you please collect the log for me?

    ·         Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder with the Log Collection Tool.

    Collect tool: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e0da314f-6216-4a18-bc6b-7d29cf83af20&displaylang=en

    ·         Send the vslogs.cab file to me (E-mail: v-alsun_at_microsoft_dot_com) or upload it to other website like Windows Live SkyDrive.

    Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

     

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

     

    Best Regards,
