I have an install package for my application that checks for the presence of .NET 1.1 and installs it if necessary. I have done over 600 installs with this package with no problem. On my last install, I got 1603: Error installing Microsoft .NET 1.1 which I've never had before.
I uninstalled everything to do with .NET, through the Control Panel. I've done this before and it has solved the problem, but not this time. I've researched this on the web and read about shared files, security issues, and the dotnetfx cleanup tool, but before I do anything I would like any advice or tips from anyone who has actually had this problem and solved it.
I'm trying to install on a 1 year old laptop, 1 GB memory, Windows 7 32bit. I'm doing it by remote assistance which has never been a problem but I thought I should include this for completeness.
Thanks in advance.
