.NET Framework Setup Verification Tool errors from framework 3.5 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying to install TurboTax 2009. I've noticed that TT2008 stopped working but when i uninstalled .NET 3.5, it will load.  I have used the frameworks cleanup tool, then reinstalling 3.5 SP1, with no luck.  I tried the frameworks cleanup tool and a reinstall of 3.5 SP1 with updates, as well as used the MS Windows repair utility, all with no success. 

    I have contacted turbotax who provided me with a link to a link to Aaron Stebner's Weblog for the NET Framework setup verification tool.

    The tool reports a failure when I run it against frameworks 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1, and has the following errors written into its error log files as shown below. The same errors were written into the error logs when the utility was run for each frameworks version.

    File C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\regsvcs.exe.config is not installed on the system
    File C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\installutil.exe.config is not installed on the system
    File C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\mscormmc.cfg is not installed on the system

    Verification failed for product .NET Framework 2.0 SP2

    Verification failed for product .NET Framework 3.0 SP2

    Verification failed for product .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

    Per turbtax, after "repairing" frameworks with the MSWindows repair utility, i downloaded 1.1 and tried to repair/reinstall it using the instructions per MS KB306160 and using the command
         N:\dotnetframework\dotnetfx.exe /t:c:\temp /c:"msiexec.exe /i c:\temp\netfx.msi REINSTALL=ALL ReinstallMODE=vomus" ).  

    After version 1.1 was installed, i reran the verification tool, which continued to log the same errors as listed above.  

    I then ran the sfc / scannow command (per Aaron Stebner's Weblog, and upon completion, it had not found any frameworks integrity violations.  

    I'm at a dead end on how to resolve the verification errors, in the hopes I can fix my "original" problem.  Any thoughts or advice?

    I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit), SP2, Intel CPU 2160@ 1.8Ghz, 2GB RAM

  • Hi Cxsmall,

    Thank you for your post.

    Windows Vista (all editions) includes the .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0 as OS components.

    Firstly, I would suggest you to try updating your Vista via Windows Update. Windows update finds and installs any critical security "fixes" and patches overall for the Windows OS. Whilst this may not be the case 100% of the time, it is better overall to keep your system up to date any way to make sure you are protected from any bugs or such things.

    Have you tried to follow the steps mentioned in the following blog to repair the .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0 on Windows Vista?
    See: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2008/07/03/8685850.aspx.
    You can attempt to repair or re-install Windows Vista SP2 to repair all components of SP1 including the .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0.

    If it doesn't work, for one quicker way to repair OS or restore the OS configuration to an earlier point. Here is a KB about this, please see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936212/

    If still no avail, you could try posting this issue on Technet - Windows Vista Setup forum to get more useful help there since .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0 are shipped with Vista as OS components. After your issue is solved, please try installing .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 again. If you have any concern during the installation, I'm willing to help you with that.

    Best regards,
