Windows XP SP 3
.NET Framework 4

I have been trying to install quickbooks 2011 and have ran into the same road block about 6 times now. I am receiving the error:
1st:
The installer encountered an error when running "C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Pro\third" /q/norestart
System message - The operation completed successfully.    Click OK or Cancel.
Clicked OK
Component: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Location:
"C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Pro\thirdparty\dotnet35\dotnetfx35setup.exe" /q/norestart
System message - Fatal error during installation.
Click OK
Setup.exe has encountered an error, send error report....
Click Finish.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.0 both 2 times and downloaded them from the microsoft website and also tried letting the qb software try to install it. Obviously no success there. I really need to have this up and running by the morning so all the help is GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thanks!

    After you have tried method 1, then perhaps try this tool to check if it detects 3.5: http://www.asoft.be/prod_netver.html
    (The versions that is installed should show up in the little bottom blue window of the tool)

    The other thing you may want as well is to disable any 3rd party firewalls that might be blocking components of .net framework from working properly

    The event viewer should have more details regarding the error, like a 4 digit windows installer error code. Could hep pinpoint the problem....

    Can you try the install on something more advanced than Windows XP? I have QB V2010 running on Windows 7 with .NET Framework 4 installed. I have not yet received QB V2011.

    The product is new and comes with at least one free support call. Can you call Intuit Support? If this is an endemic issue with .NET Framework, they may have a patch already.

    Is it possible to use your Windows 7 laptop tomorrow, or is there another XP machine you could try. The particular machine may have some other issue. ... Thinkpads_User

    Actually, from your Q, you might have done that? Just clarifying....

    Well, It took a repair install and installing the .NET Framework through windows update from the first version up and all of its security updates... Spent an hour on the phone with Quickbooks support, and that is what they recommended  and it worked.
    Thank you all for your help
