attempting to install dotnetfx3(.Net Framework 3.0) and the following message:

Windows Communication Foundation: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Windows Communication Foundation. MSI returned error code 1603

I have tried everything on the framework site and nothing has worked.  including uninstalling and reinstalling IIS.  I have Microsoft Windows XP Version 2002 Service pack 2 and framework 2.0 and 1.1 installed.  
Thanks

I finally got the framework installed by creating a local admin and logging in with that ID and installing WCF.exe.  Got an error writting to key permissions problem.  Gave the key everyone priveledges and installed the WCF.exe.  Was able to install the 3.0 frame work after that.  However the System.ServiceModel doesn't show when I try to add the reference in 2005. Any ideas about that?

            Hi courchjo
                    I think System.ServiceModel is a Software/Programming parameter which i can not help. You asked how to install it and i redirected you and I hope it helped you (reinstalling wfc.exe). If you like, open a new question in Software/Programming zone so Programming experts will be able to see your question via their question filter.

I finally go installed by logging onto machine only and not network.  I installed the wcf.exe from the download folder and it gave better error messages.  That could not write to Registry and what key it couldn't write too.  I gave that key sufficient priviledges and was able to installed wcf.exe and then installed the complete framework.  Don't think this product is ready for prime time!

FYI,

A quick solution may be to disable antivirus or add an exception.  I work for a large company that uses McAfee and it was the source of our 1603 error!
