  • Question

  • Hi, 

     I just formatted my system and installed Windows 8.1. I have been trying to install Framework 4.6.2 but is throwing the following error. 

    Exe (D:\888723e839020e8708\ failed with 0xc0000005 - (null).
    PerformOperation on exe returned exit code 3221225477 (translates to HRESULT = 0xc0000005)

    I have tried installing both Offline and Web installers. Both are failing at the same place. 

    I have also tried clearing out all the temp files and i have installed the following updates from Microsoft

     2883200,2889543,2894029, 2894179,2919355,2939087,2959977,2975061,2999226,3045563,3102467,3210135

  • Hello,

    Please check the following solutions offer by  Steve1964

    You have hacked or infected files on your computer.


    Check your BCD and do the below fix if necessary (at your own risk) 


    In Windows open CMD as Administrator and type BCDEdit and enter,  if your Windows Boot Loader Path is xOsload.exe then you need to remove some files and repair your BCD.

    NOTE:  you will need to re-activate Windows afterwards, so make sure you have your Windows 7 key handy.

    Boot to Windows Repair - Command

    Del D:\Windows\System32\xOsload.exe

    Del D:\Windows\System32\xNtKrnl.exe

    Del D:\Windows\System32\Drivers\oem-drv64.sys

    attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s

    ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

    bootrec /rebuildbcd

  • Hello,

     Well mine is a Windows 8.1 and not 7. Second of all, this is my office machine, so I don't think I would have infected my machine with anything. :) Also i wouldn't have the keys. I will pass on this information to my IT ppl though. They haven't been much helpful on this and hence I took it up to the forum here :) 

    Thanks for your suggestion though.

  • Hi,

    It may be related to the Windows update service or the Windows Module Installer service, can you please have a try with the following:

    1. Go to "Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools" and double-click "services"

    2. Right click on “Windows Update” and select ‘Restart’

    3. Re-run the .NET Framework 4.6.2 installer as administrator

    4. If it not works, please reproduce step1 and right-click the “Windows Modules Installer” and select ‘Start’

    5. Re-run the .NET Framework 4.6.2 installer as administrator

    You could download the Windows Fixit tool from here:, then run it to repair issues including corrupted registry keys or others.

    Meanwhile, disable any Anti-Virus or Anti-Spyware software on your computer. If the issue persists, I need your help to collect the complete installation log. Please use to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find under %temp% folder. Please upload the file to and share the link here.

    Best regards,
