  • How do you install the .NET 3.5 Framework.  using bootstrapper or full redistributable package?

    The size of the bootstrapper program is just 2.7 MB. But the size of the .NET 3.5 Framework size is 197 MB.  When you use the bootstrapper to install .NET 3.5,  it will actually download from Microsoft site and install it in your local PC.  You installation interuppted  if your internet connection fails in the middle of the installation. Try to download the full redistributable package and install it.

    Also you can try to use the this .NET Framework Cleanup Tool to uninstall .NET 2.0(if already have) from your machine and make fresh install using  full redistributable package. .NET 3.5 setup will install .NET 2.0, 3.0 and their service packs behind scene.

  • Hi Brandor7,

    Thank you for your post.

    For error 1603, it's a common message that means "fatal error during installation".

    To install .NET Framework 3.5, you could try the following steps for further troubleshooting.

    1. Check the system requirements for .NET Framework 3.5 installation:
        http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb882520.aspx

    2. Download .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (Full Package)
        Note: You can try some download manager software to help downloading.

    3. Use Cleanup tool to clear the failed installation of .NET Framework 3.5 >> 3.0 >> 2.0 in order

    4. Run the installer to install .NET 3.5 SP1 with Administrator Privilege

    5. 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 3.5 SP1 full package
    - 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
    - Send vslogs.cab file to me (v-yicche@microsoft.com)

  • I found the same error and after trial error for long time.

    [09/01/10,07:50:53] Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a. MSI returned error code 1603
    [09/01/10,07:51:28] WapUI: [2] DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a is not installed.

    Here is the solution that works for me:

    delete the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{00B01B2E-B1FE-33A6-AD40-57DE8358DC7D}

    After delete, dotnet framework setup running smooth.

    Good luck!
