.NET update will not install


J

JonathanL

I have an XP system that I just rebuilt that will not install Microsoft .NET
Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows Server
2003, and Windows XP (KB974417).

The system is running XP Media Center Edition SP3 and is part of a small
domain. No other XP systems (a mixture of Pro and MCE) have this problem.

All other .NET versions with their service packs and updates have installed
with no problem. This includes .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 KB958481 and KB976569.
It's only KB974417 that will not install.

I have Googled this problem and I believe I have tried every suggestion I've
found. This includes removing all .NET using the dotnetfx cleanup tool and
then reinstalling them in the order of .NET 3.5, .NET 1.1, then .NET 1.1 SP1.
The .NET 3.5 SP1 also installs 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2.

I'm using WSUS on the domain and it shows the install as failed. When I
tried to manually install the update via Windows Update I get the Event Log
error "Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update
with error 0x80070643: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 Security
Update for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP (KB974417)."

Downloading from MS and manually installing KB974417
(NDP20SP2-KB974417-x86.exe) gives me the message "None of the products that
are addressed by this software update are installed on this computer. Click
Cancel to exit setup."

What can I do to get this update installed? It was installed prior to the
rebuild and the only thing changed hardware-wise is the new hard drive (old
one died).

I think you need to install 1.1 and 1.1 SP1 first, then apply 3.5.

According to KB976982, 3.5 must be installed first. I don't know why, but
that's what it says.

I really don't think this is a WSUS problem since I've tried to install the
update from Windows Update as well as downloading the standalone KB exe and
running that.

Also, KB 976982 is one of the articles I followed trying to resolve this.
That's where I mainly got the idea of doing what I outlined in my original
post. It didn't help.

So I'm still back at square one. No other PC in this domain had this problem
including this one before I rebuilt it. It's only since I rebuilt it that
this KB will not install. I know there must be something that needs to be
done within Windows, either a registry tweak or something.

I am having the exact same problem. Replaced a hard drive, reinstalled
Windows XP Pro SP3 from a Dell OEM CD, added to a domain simply to allow WSUS
to work it's magic, and reliably getting failures with the same error codes
on this one update.

I first was receiving the error after installing from an Windows XP Pro SP2
CD (couldn't find the SP3 flavor) so today just decided to wipe AGAIN and
reinstall from the SP3 disc I found. When I run manually, I get the "None of
the products that are addressed by this software update are installed on this
computer. Click Cancel to exit setup." message.

Apart from calling Microsoft or opening a ticket, does anyone have a
solution or any further update on this issue?

Wish my solution was that simple. It seems that I have both of those
updates queued for install, but neither will install. It seems that
net 2.0 SP2 is not installed, nor can it be installed. I guess I'm
down to just ignoring the updates, or I'll be stripping out the .net
goodies and reinstalling.

....or you can do the intelligent thing and start a new post explaining your
problem, including your OS, SP level, architecture, KB# & error code.
