I am trying to install .NET Framework from within Add/Remove programs and get this message;

"Microsoft .NET Framework Setup failed. If this problem continues, contact Product Support Services."

I have tried installing it from the Web Updates page --- same error.  I have also downloaded the actual install package -- same error.


Any ideas?


Thanks

So you tried to install this from the Windows Update page?

Have you tried to install it from the executable mode?  (of course you will need to go into install mode from the command prompt)

As mentioned above, I have tried to install from the web as well as the executable from install mode.

Are you sure that no one is on the machine & that you have full admin rights?  Also, another thing that has strangely worked for me in the past is to download the install file (which it sounds like you already have) & then unplug the network cable & try the install...this ensures that your terminal server isn't doing anything else that may conflict.

Do you recommend doing this install from Safe Mode?

You won't be able to since it needs Windows Installer probably, which doesn't load/work in safe mode

I do have full rights to this W2000 Server.

I have verfied that it is running SP4.  IE6.0 and the latest Microsoft Updates not including Media Player 9.0.

I have tried your loading suggestions with no luck.

I have tried re-downloading the actual .NET executable install file -- no luck.

I have tried installing it from Windows Update from within Add/Remove -- no luck.

I have checked the registry to see if any traces of the install might have been installed -- no luck finding .NET in the registry.

Any suggestions?
