  • The error indicates  that the source files are missing (CBS_E_SOURCE_MISSING).

    Where are you downloading .NET 4.6.1 (please give URL), and is it a web installer or a full package?

    I suggest that you try using the offline installer:

  • I've just tried the suggested installer and it exits with just the same error. Anything else I can do?

  • Hi cubrman,

    I checked your log file and found the following error message:

    [1/29/2016, 10:23:51] Error 0x800706d9: Failed to open the current cluster

    There is a similar case as yours:

    Please refer to pvdg42's reply and take the steps he mentioned above, run the .NET Framework 4.6.1 standalone installer as administrator .
