When trying to isntall netframe 4 i get the following error in the event logs

Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile -- Error 1923. Service '@C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\WPF\WPFFontCache_v0400.exe,-100' (WPFFontCache_v0400) could not be installed.  Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.

I have tried the net frame Cleaners from this site No luck.

Any ideas?
Thank you in advance.

    Check if you are login with an account with Administrator rights. If not, login with Administrator and try to install again.

    Which OS are you using ?

    check below link for OS Requirements / System Requirement

    or you can try like below

    clean up %temp% folder.

    run dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe as administrator.

    To do so: Right click>>Run as administrator.

    Please ensure all the antivirus and antispyware are disabled during the installation.

    Windows sbs 2008 x64. Logged as domain admin. Also av or firewall is temp disabled to verify that was not the issue.

    I have tried to remove temp files and rerun the setup but still get the same error at the same point.

    I will point out that i have noticed in services WPFFontCache_v0400 has a description failed to read description. Error Code: 2.

    I fixed my issue by removing some entries of net frame4 out registries.
