  • Hi Dipati,

    Thank you for your post.

    Some clarification with you:
    What's your OS?

    Firstly, please help me to check whether you install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 with Administrator Privilege.

    If you're running Windows 7 on your machine, .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1 is shipped with it as one of OS component.
    For .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1, it includes .NET 2.0 with SP2 and .NET 3.0 with SP2 as prerequisite.
    This means, you have the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 plus a few post 3.5 SP1 bug fixes on Windows 7. They are OS components. .NET 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 can be added or removed via the Programs and Features control panel. Thus, we don't need to manually install them. You can try Verifictaion Tool to verify .NET Frameworks on your machine.

    If you're running XP or Windows Server 2003, could you please try the following points for further troubleshooting?
    1. Check the system requirements for .NET Framework 3.5 installation:
    2. Download .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (Full Package)
    3. Use Cleanup tool to remove .NET Framework 3.5 >> 3.0 >> 2.0 in order
    4. Run the installer to install .NET 3.5 SP1
    5. If any problem occurs during the installation, use Collect tool to collect the log files for further troubleshooting.
    (Please follow the following steps to collect the log files)

    If you're running Vista or Windows Server 2008:
    1. Download .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (Full Package)
    2. Check whether you have turned on the windows feature of .NET Framework 3.0.
    Please go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off -> Check the box next to Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0.
    3. Use Verification Tool to verify .Net Framework 2.0, 3.0. If .Net Framework 2.0 and 3.0 cannot be verified on your computer, you can try 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/2007/03/26/how-to-repair-the-net-framework-2-0-and-3-0-on-windows-vista.aspx
    4. If .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0 are verified successfully but the installation still fails, please collect the log file.
    (Please follow the following steps to collect the log files)

    The steps to collect the log:
    - Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")
    - Install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 full package
     (For Vista or later OS, the installer must be run with administrator privileges - Right-click the installer >> "Run as Administrator")
    - Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder
       Collect tool: http://blogs.msdn.com/heaths/archive/2008/05/09/visual-studio-and-net-log-collection-utility.aspx
    - Upload vslogs.cab file to SkyDrive and post the link back here

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.
