Microsoft .NET Framework UPDATE FAILED

efaraband 175 32 December 8, 2011 at 07:35 AM
I am running Windows 7 64bit, and Windows Update shows 4 updates for .NET Framework update, but all four of them fail. I tried updating only one of them at a time, but that failed as well. The error message i get is Error Code 66A, and after researching how to fix that, none of the solutions worked.
I attempted to go to Program&Features, and repair the install, but it fails due to 'Fatal Error Dung Installation". Trying to remove it also fails. So i downloaded something called 'dotnetfx_cleanup_tool' which completely removed .NET framework, and when i restarted, windows update installed net framework 4 automatically, but when i restarted again, and came to do windows update, the same original 4 updates were there, and they keep failing...

Any ideas? Thanks

This is the Log of the error when the repair fails:

I've had .NET failures many times. Write down the KB numbers and go to Microsoft's website and download those 4 updates and install them manually. See if that works. If those fail, check the Application Event Viewer for more information and then post it here.

Get the .Net Framework Cleanup Tool [msdn.com]. Read from top to bottom before starting, then reinstall the latest cumulative version of .Net Framework.

Did you already try to install the updates manually? If so, we would need the install log from the .NET installer.

I tried the cleanup tool, and it cleaned successfully. After i restarted, windows update automatically installed .Netframework 4 and asked me to reboot again, and then the same 4 original updates failed.
So i tried the cleanup again, and this time i stopped the update, and downloaded what i thought was the newest version of .netframework for win 7 64bit, but after a reboot, the same 4 updates failed...
Can someone link me to the newest download? Maybe one that includes these updates in it already?
Thanks

I'm right 97% of the time. Who cares about the other 4%

You are currently logged in as a user with Administrator privs. correct? (to find out for sure, from an admin command prompt, type: whoami - then type: net local administrators - to see if you are in Admin group)

If so, you may try the Fix It button on the following site [microsoft.com]

OR try the following:

Repair the version of the .Net Framework that you fail to install updates.
.NET Framework 4
Windows Vista and Windows 7 users follow these steps to repair the .NET Framework 4 installation:1.Close any currently running applications.
2.Click Start, and type Uninstall in the Search box and then click Uninstall a program.
3.Double-click Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile to launch .NET Framework 4 Client Profile Maintenance dialog.
4.Select Repair .NET Framework 4 Client Profile to its original state and click Next.
5.Allow the repair to complete and then click Finish.
6.Click Restart Now to restart your computer.
7.Visit Windows Update, and attempt to install updates again.

Strange, typically the SUR tool is pretty good at picking up what's wrong. I fixed a server 2008 that also failed to update recently thanks to it.

Anyway, have you tried these steps below:

I went to "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET" there is a directory called "Assembly".

I looked in the directory and found some subdirectories with lots of old dot net 4 files. I renamed the directory Assembly2 and tried to install Dot Net 4 and it worked!!!!

It seems that something was in the old "Assembly" directory.

When i try to repair, it goes through the process, and then after a few minutes it fails saying 'did not repair due to: Fatal Error During Installation. Tried all the ideas mentioned in this thread, as well blogs, and searching multiple pages on google. Still, keeps failing...

I had enough issues with this that I'm thinking about just removing the one piece of software that uses .NET and finding another version of it that doesn't use .NET instead.

Time to operate....scalpel...

1. Download 7zip [7-zip.org] if you already don't have it (maybe Winzip will work - not sure)
2. Download each KB if not already downloaded (if not you can download from MS Download site or HERE [microsoft.com] and search for each KB#)
3. Unzip each file so that you get it's .cab
4. From an Admin Command Prompt type: dism /online /get-packageinfo /packagepath:<drive letter:\path to the cab>
5. With the results, see if on the second line it states: Applicable : Yes
6. If true, try the following from same Admin/Elevated command prompt: dism /online /add-package /packagepath:<drive letter:\path to the cab>

If you get an error on step 6, what is the error?
