.NET security update... won't install won't install

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by NimbUs, Jul 8, 2010.

    Have Windows XP SP3 (with IE7), .NET framework until version 2
    installed. However, one (and only one) security update from Windows
    update will not install - ever, believe me I've tried multiple times
    for months. It's been downloaded somewhere to my local store, but the
    update itself fails, and the WU site keeps offering the update in
    question, viz.

    ..NET framework 1.1 SP1 Security update (KB 953297).

    What other .NET remated updates I have, all correctly installed
    according to my WY history :

    ..NET Fw 2.0 SP1 security (953300),
    ..NET Fw 2.0 SP1 (110806)
    Security update for .NET Fw 2.0 (928365)

    So what now, good people ? Can you help me sort out the mess, and
    does-it even matter ? Should I try to uninstall everything .NET
    related? I am afraid there is a prescribed order to be respected.
    Oh, why oh why are MS *so bad* at this update dance ! Do you think
    they fail the updates on purpose to try and have us buy newer,
    presumably better supported, OSes sooner ?

    TIA

    Often a time consuming issue. Start here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906602

    Usually finding the error code from manually checking WU/MU (Start, All
    Programs, Windows Update or Microsoft Update is usually at the top) and
    Google searching for fixes on the error resolves most of them.

    OPTION A:

    See the "How to obtain help" section of
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953297

    For home users, no-charge support is available by calling 1-866-PCSAFETY
    (1-866-727-2338; and/or 1-866-234-6020 and/or 1-800-936-5700) in the United
    States and in Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft subsidiary.
    There is no-charge for support calls that are associated with security
    updates. When you call, clearly state that your problem is related to a
    Security Update and cite the update's KB number (e.g., KB953297).

    Or you can...

    Start a free Windows Update support incident email request:
    https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?gprid=6527

    Customers who experience issues installing Microsoft security updates also
    can visit the following page for assistance:
    https://consumersecuritysupport.microsoft.com/

    For more information about how to contact your local Microsoft subsidiary
    for security update support issues, visit the International Support Web
    site: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

    For enterprise customers, support for security updates is available through
    your usual support contacts.

    OPTION B:

    See:

    When installing updates using Windows update or Microsoft Update you may
    receive Error 0x643 or 0x80070643 (23 Oct-09)
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976982

    Then proceed per the following:

    =====================

    Step #1 => Before doing anything else, write down what .NET Framework
    versions are currently installed:

    How to determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed and
    whether service packs have been applied
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318785

    [As of this post, KB318785 hasn't been revised since November 2008 so you
    may not find the pertinent information in it.]

    Step #2 => Now see Resolution Method 2 in this related KB article:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923100

    After running the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool (not the Windows Installer
    Cleanup utility!), reinstall all .NET Framework versions (but only the ones
    you wrote down in #1 above) manually using the download links on the page
    then run Windows Update manually to install security updates for same.

    Download links for .NET Framework Cleanup Tool:


    http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip


    http://blogs.msdn.com/cfs-file.ashx...-90-44-93/dotnetfx_5F00_cleanup_5F00_tool.zip

    NB: If you remove .NET Framework 3.5 (SP1) using the tool, reinstalling .NET
    Framework 3.5 will also install .Net Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2; then
    Windows Update will offer .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

    IMPORTANT! => If you remove .NET Framework 3.5 (SP1), reinstall your .NET
    Framework versions in the following order:

    1. .Net Framework 3.5, then...
    2. .Net Framework 1.1, then...
    3. .Net Framework 1.1 SP1

    NB: KB923100 references this page:
    http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/05/30/611355.aspx. Please read
    ALL of it as well as the related page
    http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/pages/8904493.aspx before using the .NET
    Framework Cleanup Tool.

    Step #3 => Check-in at Windows Update and install any critical security
    updates offered.
