  • General discussion



    Hi, new to this so bear with me.


    i was trying to install visualbasic express version 2.0.50727.42  for my pc. and found after all the modules were downloaded that .NETfrmwork 2.0 failed to install( causing all the other modules to fail too)  the fail error is as follows


    EventType : visualstudio8setup     P1 : 183     P2 : 8.0.50727.42_rtm_x86ret
    P3 : msi     P4 : inst     P5 : f    
    P6 : ca_installassemblydef.3643236f_fc70_11d3_a536     P7 : -     P8 : 1603
    P9 : -     P10 : -    


    it sent details to microsoft using various other log info that i can't seem to find on my pc.


    i've ran the MS baseline analyser to check if everything is up to date and is ok.

    I uninstalled .NET 1.1 from the add/remove programs in case this was the problem, even ran the 2.0 uninstall utility.

    checked msi version= 3.1.4000.2435


    pls help?

    OK just got this sorted.  previous versions of .NET framework uninstalls left fragments still in the registry ( not seen anything like that since the early days of windows)

    He has a neat wee uninstall utility (well done Aaron, it worked 1st time) as well as other handy troubleshooting tips.



    if your system re-boots to minimum resolution don't panic. just re-install your video drivers(NVIDIA 7300 in my case)
