Unable to install .Net 3.5 OS XP sp3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi:

    I have ran MicrosoftFixit.ProgramInstallUninstall.Run.exe to uninstall the Net framework 3.5 sp1 and tried to reinstall it using microsoft update.  This didn't work.  Proceeded with the uninstall of 3.5, 3.0 and 2.0 with cleanup_tool.exe and downloaded dotnetfx35.exe. 

    After running dotnetfx35.exe I also got an error message. 

    What's left in the add/remove programs is Net framework 1.1 and Net framework 3.5 even though 3.5 is not installed. 

    I am unable to attach the .cab file to this document

    Regards

    Luke

  • You can use this .NET Framework removal tool to get rid of any remaining .NET Framework 3.5 pieces:

    Leave .NET Framework 1.1 alone, it has nothing to do with your 3.5 issue.

    After cleanup, download a fresh copy of the cumulative installer for .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 through 3.5 SP1:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

    Before running the installer, clear out your %temp% directory and disable your AV software.

    Run the installer from an account with full administrative permissions.

    If the install fails, provide complete install logs as follows:

    After you run Collect.exe, you'll find vslogs.cab in your %temp% directory. Please upload vslogs.cab to a public site, like SkyDrive, and post the link here.

    I got this problem in one of my systems a couple of months ago.  So just try to uninstall the .net framework completely.  there is bridging between the old and new frameworks.

    .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 is now live on the Microsoft Download Center. Weighing in at 2.8 MB, the service pack will offer a cumulative update to versions 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 of .NET Framework, not only delivering bug fixes but also introducing fresh features. On top of this, the cumulative release brings to the table servicing updates to the sub components of previous versions of .NET Framework.

    So try to uninstall the framework completly and reboot your system so that registry got refreshed completly and then try installing the dotnetfx35.exe from here .net framework 3.5 complete sp1 .It is full and this will install dot net framework 3.5 with sp1.


    This will solve the problem for sure.
