Possible solution to .NET Framework Updates
Like many of you, I have been grappling with unsuccessful .NET Framework
updates. Hopefully, this post might help you. I am operating from Windows XP
Home Edition SP3 - 32bit. What I did...

From Control Panel - Add And Remove Programs, I removed .NET Framework 1.1
(it had SP1 on top) NOTE: Add and Remove Programs would NOT allow me to
remove .NET 2.0 SP2 or 3.0 SP3. I DID NOT USE THE WINDOWS UNINSTALL CLEAN UP
UTILITY. I attempted to uninstall .NET 3.5 SP1 and it allowed me to do so.
The program asked if I wanted to Uninstall or Repair the program. I SELECTED
REPAIR.

Then, I downloaded and installed .NET Framework 1.1 successfully. Then
downloaded .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 (on top) successfully.

It APPEARS that there is a .dll in this package which controls any and all
..NET updates. (I'm sorry but I did not write this program name down - but
you will see it upon installation.) The most gracious Guru's here will
identify the file for you. (I mean that genuinely.

I think my file might have become corrupted during a defragmentation or
something. REBOOT! Anyway, on your attempt to download and install the
latest updates, I suggest you begin with the oldest KB (i.e. KB982168) then
move ahead.
My troubles manifested themselves here and again failed on KB979906 and
KB979909. DO THESE ONE AT A TIME.

Note: Make sure that the 'Blue' bar at the top of your download screen
remains BLUE! If it turns GREY, immediately click on it and make it blue
again. There seems to be some problem with the install becoming 'suspended'.


That's my story and I'm sticking to it! All the best! Good luck!

RE: Possible solution to .NET Framework Updates
Just a personal observation. I use Windows XP SP3, and IE7. Sometime in the
second half of last year there was an .Net update that wouldn't install. I
went through the rigamarole of uninstalling all the various versions, and
reinstalling the same versions in a certain order before the new .Net update
would install. It took a half a day or more. Now somewhere in the middle of
2010, I am told I have to do it ALL OVER AGAIN! What is going on up there in
the Puzzle Palace of Seattle? I have a computer to do something called
"production". Maybe you computer nerds at Microsoft never heard of such a
thing. I do not relish the thought of wasting another half day or more
getting the .Net Framework to update. I only have one program that I know
uses .Net Framework. Maybe I ought to do something else for that program and
forget about .Net Framework. The .Net Framework system is too complex.
Simplify it at least to the point that it will update on its own as
advertised. Instead of having multiple versions of the thing, have one
version that does it all. You do that with Windows!

I grew up on MS Dos from 1988. I have a son that has been trying to get me
to switch to Apple for 15 years. It is looking better and better everyday.
As soon as you force me to upgrade to Windows 7, I just might do it.

Thank you for letting me vent.

Have a nice day,

Bob

RE: Possible solution to .NET Framework Updates
Hi MagicBob. Man, do I feel your pain. I'm not certain that .NET Framework
does anything for me. I figure they want me to download and install this
stuff for my "protection"; so I do it.

Through Windows 95, 98 and XP, I have experienced the agony and loss of over
$5000 worth of Hardware and Software which has become obsolete. I chose
Microsoft PC back in the day because there were so many programs available to
run on it. I have indeed paid the price.

I'm still not so sure that Apple is the fix-all for our troubles. But one
thing is for certain, it's all about the money. The computer is an
appliance... All I want to do is plug it in and have it work for me; like a
microwave or a toaster. I bought a computer to make life easier. But life
has become harder because I have to maintain this box more than I do my car!

I resisted Vista and now I'm supposed to buy into Windows7 because it's
supposed to be what Vista wasn't. Makes me think our problems with XP are
induced.

Now I'll have to build a new computer with Windows7; but I'll keep my XP
machine long after Microsoft stops supporting it. So, yeah, I feel your pain.

And keep your IE7!!! Forget updating to IE8. You'll be stuck with Windows
Live Essentials and you won't be able to rid yourself of it. All the best!

Nonsense. I have installed IE8 on my 2 XP systems and there is not, nor
will there *ever* be, any Live non-Essentials present.

Did you download IE8 from the MS Download Center or have it installed
via auto update ? NEITHER of those installation methods installs Live
non-Essentials.
