Installation .NET Framework 2.0

I am having trouble reinstalling .NET Framework 2.0 on an exchange 2007 x64 server.  When I run Netfx64.exe it gives an "Error 1324. The folder path 'Program Files' contains an invalid character". There are two Program Files folder on C: one is Program Files and the other Program Files (x86). Perhaps there is a confict here.

Because of .NET error non of the Exchange 2007 services are starting. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks for all the help.  However, it did not help resolve the issue. Due to the citrical nature of the issue I had to accquire help of an Exchange engineer who was able to remove and reinstall .NET 2.0 services and all Exchange 2007 services started working properly. I don't know exactly what was done by the engineers to resolve the issue.

Regards!

Hello EverardSingh,

check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProgramFilesDir to make sure it doesn't have any spaces or invalid chars

There are three entries as below:

ProgramFilesDir  REG_SZ   C:\Program Files (x86)
PrograFilesPath  REG_EXPAND_SZ    %ProgramFiles%

JimboEfx,

I have followed instructions on article 908077 to manually remove the .net 2.0 installation. .The problem is when I try to reinstall .net the above mentioned error occurs.

You are installing the right .NET Framework edition like Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x64) from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b44a0000-acf8-4fa1-affb-40e78d788b00&displaylang=en for 64-bit support ?
