I've repeatedly attempted to install .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 in a fairly fresh developer environment (60 days old). Unfortunately, after displaying "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1" and the first two completion segments of the progress bar, the installation hangs. Worse, cancelling the installation also hangs, and the next time I try to install, I have to rollback the failed installation's changes.
I've killed every non-MS process before initiating the installation -- including anti-malware apps -- to no avail. System:
HP Pavilion zx5000
Intel Pentium-4 4.2 GHz HT CPU
1 GB RAM
VS.NET 2003/.NET Framework 1.1
I'm at a loss. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
