.Net Framework 3.5 Setup Error - Vista
Posted on 2009-04-12
Hi there expert's,
This one is really doing my head in. I simply cannot find a way to install .net framework 3.5 on my girlfriends computer. It was only built last week. Is running genuine vista home premium with sp1.
Everything else is running fine. I downloaded the 3.5 installer from the microsoft site. It gets to the very start of the install and then shows an error msg that simply says "setup error" with no code or anything else. I've looked in the windows temp file and the temporary folder that the installer creates but have been unable to find an error log.
I was having trouble installing the framework on my computer and the only thing that ended up working was a format/reinstall.
This is really annoying me as I've been doing a fair amount of development in vs 2008 and with the xna framework, which requires the users of my product to have the .net framework 3.5 installed. I'm worried now that this is going to be a problem for deploying my product if a certain amount of people cannot get the framework installed. I've never had an issue with microsofts products previous to this, but this is just really annoying. A google search yielded many similar complaints to mine, albeit with no answers that have helped me so far. Is this a problem that microsoft is looking in to?
