  • Hi,

    I was facing same problem while installing .Net framework  3.5 (Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0a: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0a. MSI returned error code 1603)

    I fixed the problem by following steps:
    1. Uninstall Visual studio 2005 and .Net framework 2.0. Then uninstall IIS 5.1
    2. Reboot system.
    3. Install IIS from windows components (IMP: IIS has to be installed before VS Studio 2005 installation)
    4. Installed VS studio 2005 and .Net framework 2.0
    5. Installed .net framework 3.5 from folllowing website:

    These steps worked for me.
