Is version 1.1 SP1 the only version you have installed?

Do you have version 3.5 SP1(which includes versions 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2) and version 4.0 installed?

I have two 1.0 hotfixes 1.1 2.0 SP1 3.0 SP2 3.5 SP1 and 4 Client Profile. See attachment
This leads to my next question. Are all these versions necessary or can the earlier versions be removed.

Version 3.5 SP1(which contain versions 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2) and version 4.0 are required in order for certain programs, suites, and drivers to install and work.

Version 1.1 SP1 was released several years ago, so I wouldn't be concerned about security updates for it not wanting to install.

Do not uninstall any version.

It looks like there is a lot of us with the same problem. I searched the net and it looks like Microsoft doesn't know what to do either.

I had a user with the same problem in another thread which seems to be pretty widespread. It seems the download fails, looking for the NETFX.MSI file.

Tried the FixIt (option 1) here followed by manually installing the update:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976982#method1

but it didn't work.

Here's was the user said he did that worked:
Quote:
From the control panel Add/Remove I uninstalled .net 1.1
I then downloaded .net 1.1
Updated to 1.1 SP 1
rebooted and then the install worked!

Yeah, he had trouble running it to but I think it was just the last part that fixed it.

I guess it's a corrupt .NET Framework 1.1. to begin with. I didn't have any trouble with it installing.

Removal of Net Framework 1.1 re-installing 1.1, then SP1 , then the update works. Now when I boot I get the Welcome Screen and have to click on my name to continue. How do I get rid of that.

Just as a general statement possibly related to this thread, I offer the following:

Since running a clean install a few years ago, I have religiously installed all Windows Updates by downloading the executable file from Windows Update Catalog . I have my Windows Update set to notify only, after which I go to the normal win update site and copy/paste the KBxxxxxx numbers into the aforementioned Catalog site. Then install the updates manually. I've never had one fail to install. This includes the KB2698023 addressed in the thread.

An additional advantage of this procedure (at least to me) is I have most, if not all, update executable files for XP on my external HDD. This come in handy when updating my brother-in-law's computer because he is on dial-up internet.

Which is as it should be. Do you not have a password assigned to your account?

No password. For several years up until today the Welcome page would just say Welcome for a second then continue. No name.
