  • Question

  • I'm trying to install Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 trial and it always fails installing .NET Framework 4. I get this error code... (Microsoft .NET Framework 4: [2] Error code 1612 for this component means "The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi MVS2010,

    Thank you for your post.

    Some clarification with you:
    What's your OS?

    Based on your description, Visual Studio 2010 installation was blocked when it tried to install .NET Framework 4.0.
    I would suggest you to install .NET Framework 4.0 separately from VS2010 installation.

    To install .NET Framework 4.0, you could try the following steps for further troubleshooting.

    1. Download .NET Framework 4.0 Standalone installer
        Note: You can try some download manager software to help downloading.

    2. Use Cleanup tool to clear the failed installation of .NET Framework 4.0

    3. Run the installer to install .NET 4.0 with Administrator Privilege
        Note: Right-click the installer >> "Run as Administrator"

    4. If any problem occurs during the installation, use Collect tool to collect the log files for further troubleshooting.

    The steps to collect the log:
    - Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")
    - Install .NET Framework 4.0 Standalone installer
    - 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
    - Diagnose the cause of failure installation
       Option 1:
       Try the points mentioned here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/0376db8f-4761-4ae5-9af2-98c53216318a#How_to_diagnoseVS2008_NETFramework_logs to diagnose the cause of failure installation.
       Option 2:
       Send vslogs.cab file to me (v-yicche@microsoft.com)
       Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

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

    Best regards,
