.NET 4.0 WIN7 x64: Nothing happens when I click the .exe to install. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried running it as a standalone install and web. I have tried running both as Admin. I have heard that sometimes it can take a little while to start, but I have let it sit for hours and nothing.

    This is a fresh install of windows and I have all updates. .NET updated through windows Update just fine but I cannot for the life of me get 4.0 to install.
