I recently purchased a hosted Virtual Machine package. It's 64bit Windows Server2003. At first I didn't even consider that 64bit would be a problem. Only ever worked with 32bit machines.
So, I continued by installing the .net framework 2.0. (dotNetfx.exe) and got the following error:
"This product is not supported on a 64bit operating system. Setup will now exit."
So; next I downloaded NetFx64.exe, which I assume is the correct installation exe for 64 bit os? However, half way through the install I got the following error:
"Error 1920.Service '.Net Runtime Optimization v2.0.50215_x64'(clr_optimization_v2.0.50215_64) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."
I tried to manually start the service but it wouldn't start. This is the error it gave me:
"The .Net Runtime Optimization Service v2.0.50215_x64 service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the performance Logs and Alerts service. "
So I had to rollback the install. I was logged in as administrator. Any ideas?
