.Net Framework 4 fails to install on Vista x86 Home Premium SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my computer running a 32-bit Vista Home Prenium SP2 OS, I have attempted to install .Net Framework 4 several times already. 

    Here is my logfile:


    Exe (F:\133bc79ddf638077a0dd450b\SetupUtility.exe) succeeded.

    Due to the fact that the installer would freeze on my previous installation attempts, I was forced to terminate it with task manager. I am still not sure why the installation failed the first time that I tried, however. After reading several other threads, I have a feeling that my error could be caused by the "Windows6.0-KB956250-v6001-x86.msu" file. 

    Please advise me on how to correct this issue. It's quite frustrating that some of my software isn't working due to this.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Based on your description, it seems that your issue might not be related with installation. Your OS is Windows Vista, please check the following suggestions first and check whether your issue was solved after each step.

    1.       Please disable anti-virus software or other security software and try it again.

    3.       Please right click installer and run it as Administrator and try it again.
