Unable to install .NET Framework Beta 1 on Windows Vista RC2

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello. I am trying to install Visual Studio Orcas Beta 1 on my Windows Vista RC2 (Release Candidate 2) but failed to do it successfully. The installation failed during the .NET Framework 3.5 Beta 1 step. It showed error messages on the log file that says:

[01/08/12,15:25:23] Microsoft .NET Framework v3.5: GenericComponent Action: CreateProcess launched with cmd line : C:UsersantonAppDataLocalTemp20404.001033wcudotnetframeworkdotnetfx35setup.exe /q /norestart /lang:ENU

[01/08/12,15:29:30] Microsoft .NET Framework v3.5: ***ERRORLOG EVENT*** : Error code 1 for this component means "Incorrect function."

What do I need to fix this? Please help me resolve this.

The error that you have mentioned is related to the windows registry errors and corrupted system files. You can do this manually to repair these damaged registries.

  1. Go to start menu and type CMD.
  2. Once it opened, type the following line reg delete HKLMCOMPONENTS /v StoreDirectory /f

If you can't do this yourself then you can download the Ccleaner and run the registry cleaner and it will do the things that you were doing above.

These .Net frameworks needs a special sequence of steps to be followed while installing them. So my best suggestion is to start over. Download the cleanup tool. And then start installing the frameworks one by one.

You can also try turning the windows feature on or off and then checking the box of framework.

Then try to install the .Net framework 3.5 SP1
