    .Net Framework 1.1 update fails multiple times

    Never had a windows update problem in all my life. Today I installed 18 out of 19 updates successfully. Here's the problem:

    Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 x86 (KB2833941)
    Installation date: ‎7/‎9/‎2013 6:37 PM
    Installation status: Failed
    Error details: Code 643

    I searched for help and found a "Microsoft Fix it" pertaining to the Error Code 643 and .NET Framework updates: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976982.

    So I download the Fix it CAB file but it ends up as: windowsupdate.diagcab rather than windowsupdatediag.cab as I assume it should be and will not run. So I rename it to windowsupdatediag.cab and it unzips but I don't know which file to run. Most files in the package are .ps1 and .psd1 files. There's 1 .dll and 1 .cat file.

    Nightmare.

    Maybe I should not worry myself to death about this .NET Framework update and just leave things as they are for now?

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I would try the steps listed in Method 2 (repair .net Framework) given on the link you supplied. Most of the time the problem is caused by a crupted installation of .net. Step 2 guides you through the steps to uninstall .net and then reinstall it.

    Thank you Praeses and jwitalka for your replies. I was able to resolve the issue. I used the Microsoft Fix it 50202 to reset Windows Update components and install the pesky .NET 1.1 update.
