    I cannot install .NET 3.51 sp1 on Windows Vista Home Premium (32bit). When I
    try to I get the dependancy message indicating .Net 3.0 is not installed. I
    checked the Control Panel and tried Turning it off, rebooting and turning it
    on again.

    Yet, .NET 3.51 still says it's not installed.

    Also, I cannot install the VC++ 2005 or 2008 redistributable library. All
    kinds of problems, sometimes I get the message that Setup has stopped, other
    times I get an error message saying the installer quite unexpectedly and
    cannot continue (or something similar - too many messaged to try to be
    diligent and I guess I can start over and record each one if need be).

    I've checked every page on every blog on every site I can find that even
    remotely discuses these problems.

    I need to have the installed but am now at a loss as to what I can do to
    install them.

    I began having this problem when I noticed that the Windows Update.NET 3.51
    SP1 failed. I created a new account (admin rights) tried that no go. I've
    gone to Windows Catalog and downloaded the X86 files and I need to run
    setup.exe, there is none.

    Can someone please help?
