Problem with comp-freeze when trying to run programs after installing .Net 3.5 SP1 from Windows Update. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was wanting to run Small Basic on my Windows XP (SP3) Home Edition computer, and therefore I needed 3.5 installed.

    After installing 3.5 & Small Basic, whenever I tried to run it it ran for a few secs then froze the system.

    I also experienced freezes with other software & games too, same thing happening.

    I removed the 3.0 & 3.5 installations and my other software & games worked fine again.

    I had hoped that the version from Windows Update would be ok, I had experienced the same problem before with versions released not via Windows Update.

    I've had to completely remove these installations & hide the update from the Windows Update list as Automatic Updates insists on installing it at start up.

    I've checked over my system, software etc and can find no fault with it, all my software is legitimate & installed properly, therefore I can only assume it's a problem with the .Net 3.5 Sp1 install.

    Anyone else had this issue?

    Rousel.

  • I would suggest using some debugging tools such as process monitor or process explorer from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/default.aspx to troubleshoot the problem.

    Thanks.

  • Thanks Figo,

    I'll let you know how it goes using the tools, is there any other tools you may recommend?

    It's probably something stupid on my computer causing it, it's new & freshly installed.

    I'll install .Net 3.5 from Windows Update & Small Basic again.

    Hopefully I'll be able to use Small Basic soon, been looking forward to it.

    Rousel.

  • Hi Figo, (please excuse the bold type but it is so I could distinquish the text from the info.)

    Installed the 3.5 pack from Windows Update again & Small Basic.

    I downloaded both programs you listed.

    I ran ProcExp after installing both 3.5 & SB, here's the txt file I saved afterwards...

     procexp.exe 1580  Sysinternals Process Explorer Sysinternals - www.sysinternals.com

    I also checked the 'Services' to make sure they're running ok... (anything I can see to do with .net are listed)

    .NET Runtime Optimization Service v2.0.50727_X86   Automatic & running.
    ASP.NET State Service                                                  Manual & stopped (Don't know why that is.)
    Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service                                        Manual & stopped (Or with this one either.)

    I see no others services with .net on them.

    I ran ProcMon and got it to save to a PML file on my E drive, it has lots of space.

    Unfortunately when I ran SB & the system froze and I restarted it the PML file was corrupt somehow and not being recognised as one by ProcMon, so I can't see the events.

    I looked through the Event Viewer and found these entries in the application section that happened at the time of when I was installing 3.5 ... (I include them as there are errors listed and I'm wondering if these errors could be the cause of my problem, or part of it.)

    I know there are a lot of entries but it's all the info I have at hand to help you help me with my problem.

    Is there something missing from my system or not running which should be?

    I know this is probably only happening to me, and I do hope someone can help me out of this sticky hole.

    As I said before my system is new, a clean install of XP Home updated to SP3, all my drivers are up to the latest versions.

    I'm sorry that the ProcMon data isn't available, I tried to save it to another format but it would only do that with what was in the current list and not the logfile.

    If there is any more info you need, like a list of all the services & whether running or not on my machine.

    Let me know and I'll provide what I can.

    Unfortunately I need to do some work with my other software, I did create a restore point prior to installing 3.5 & SB so I can restore to that and later restore to how my system is right now, I've already created one for that.

    I would be eternally grateful if someone could help me resolve this issue I'm having, I do so want to do things with .Net, I'm eager to learn programming with it.

    I don't know what else to say for now so I'll leave it there and wait for any responses.

    Once again my thanks to you Figo for your help so far.

    Take care,

    Rousel.

    Edit : Can anyone see what the problem is and help me get .Net working?
