    .NET updates won't install

    I keep receiving updates for .NET 3.5 and security updates for .NET Framework 2.0 SP2; there are 7 of them. When I click on install, they all want to send error messages to Microsoft and then fail to install. What can I look for to try and figure out why this is happening? Thanks to all who help on this site.

    Trying to attach screen shots of the files that won't install and can't seem to do it in an editing situation. I'll post them in a new topic.

    From the link I gave you:
    "To successfully install the update, uninstall all the versions of the .NET Framework on the computer, and then reinstall all the versions of the .NET Framework on the computer. You may have to work through more than one of the following methods.

    Method 1: Manually remove and reinstall .NET Framework

    To manually remove and reinstall the .NET Framework, follow these steps:

    1. Remove the .NET Framework.

    a. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    b. Double-click Add or Remove Programs.

    c. Note each version of the .NET Framework that is already installed on the computer. Then, uninstall all the versions of the .NET Framework.

    d. When you are prompted, restart the computer.

    2. Use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to clean up the MSI database state for all the versions of the .NET Framework.

    . Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...bd/msicuu2.exe

    a. Install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility as an administrator or as a user account that is a member of the local Administrators group.

    b. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Install Cleanup.

    c. In the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility, remove all Windows Installer applications for the .NET Framework.

    3. Restart the computer.

    4. Download and then reinstall all the versions of the .NET Framework that were previously installed on the computer.
    To download the .NET Framework 3.5, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en (5. When you are prompted, restart the computer.

    Note When you have reinstalled all the versions of the .NET Framework, you can use Windows Update to check for updates to the .NET Framework.


    Method 2: Use the .NET Framework automatic cleanup tool

    This tool is not intended as a substitute for the standard uninstall procedure. You should try to perform an uninstall by using the steps in Method 1, earlier in this article, before you use this cleanup tool.

    The .NET Framework cleanup tool removes the .NET Framework for you. For information about how to obtain and use this tool, visit the following MSDN Web site:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archi...30/611355.aspx


    Note This cleanup tool deletes shared files and registry keys that are used by multiple versions of the .NET Framework. To guarantee that all versions of the .NET Framework work correctly, if you run the cleanup tool to remove the .NET Framework, you must first remove all installed versions of the .NET Framework by using this cleanup tool. Then, you must reinstall all the previously installed versions starting with the lowest version number.

    Suppose that you have the .NET Framework 1.1 and the .NET Framework 2.0 installed on your computer, and you plan to use this cleanup tool. In this scenario, you should use the cleanup tool to first remove the .NET Framework 1.1, and then use the cleanup tool to remove the .NET Framework 2.0. After you have removed both versions, you would then reinstall .NET Framework 1.1, and then install the .NET Framework 2.0, in that sequence.
