trouble installing .Net framework 3.5

Posted on 2009-04-21

I have a server that hosts multiple websites using 1.1 and 2.0 framework. There's a new app that requires .net framework v3.5 installed. I downloaded and tried both v3.5 and v3.5 with SP1 after it prompts for reboot and the server is rebooted nothing comes up. I checked the logs in the log folder at: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1\Logs
I noticed plenty of these errors:
[04/21/09,20:50:19] Setup.exe: GetGlobalCustomProperty - Property: {8297A38B-6431-4F1D-9F6E-C3D371CEA383} - PropertyName: WebSetup - Value: 1
[04/21/09,20:50:19] Setup.exe: ISetupManager::RunInstallFromList(IP_POSTINSTALL) completed
[04/21/09,20:50:19] Setup.exe: ISetupManager::RunInstallLists() completing

[04/21/09,20:50:19] WapUI: {4F8791EE-486F-44B5-952B-F28F9FD58BD0}

When Application log in Event Viewer, I see this message: Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 -- Installation completed successfully.

How do I resolve this?
Note, I want to be able t use previously installed frameworks also hence cannot get rid of them.

Please advise!

    I don't see anything in your post that indicates an error.
    Especially when you say:
    "When Application log in Event Viewer, I see this message: Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 -- Installation completed successfully."

    So when you say:
    "after it prompts for reboot and the server is rebooted nothing comes up."

    Do you mean the server does not come up? (What do you mean by "nothing comes up"?)

    There is no "ASP.Net 3.5" as far as IIS is if you're looking for that to be an option for you website/virtual directory's "ASP.Net" tab in the won't be there.
    An app developed using VS2008 and using the 3.5 framework will still be running under the 2.0x framework in IIS.

    Ok. If I don't see it in IIS then what version would I choose for the website in "ASP.NET" tab for the application that requires 3.5 framework?

    You would still use the "2.0x" version in IIS

    Sorry but just so that I understand it correctly, if I'm using integrated security and I'd still register the windows user with 2.0x? like aspnet_regiis.exe -ga username

    Accepted Solution

    there is not a 3.5 version of aspnet_regiis, you would still work with the 2.0 version of aspnet_regiis

    If you look at the web.config file of a 2.0 version and compare it to a web.config of a 3.5...that's where you see things differ. but from a server/IIS standpoint, a 3.5 web app still runs under 2.0

    Thanks a lot that makes total sense.
