    My computer is reporting as follows:

    Updates were unable to be sucessfully installed
    Security Update for Microsoft.NET Framework, Version 2.0 (KB917283)

    How do I either get the update installed (I tried re-booting, to refresh the
    system, before trying again, but that didn't work) or at least stop the
    reminder icon from constantly sitting in the taskbar, taunting me?

    I looked upthe Error Code for this matter: 0x643. No solution was apparent.

    Thanks guys - Ken23

    As I mentioned in a recent post for Windows Update.
    Try following these steps to resolve the Windows Update issue.

    Step 1:
    Click on Start > Run
    paste this into the run line and hit Enter or Ok.

    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll wuaueng1.dll wups.dll softpub.dll wuauapi.dll

    Step 2:
    -Open My Computer > Navigate to C:\Windows\System32
    -Rename the folder CatRoot2 to CatRoot2Old
    -Close My Computer

    Step 3:
    -Open My Computer > Navigate to C:\Windows\
    -Rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to SDOld
    -Close My Computer

    Step 4:
    Go to Windows Update and try reinstalling the latest updates.


    Also, If you want to stop the alert for the update being ready to be
    installed. You can go to the Windows Update, and choose custom, Choose the
    Update you wish to hide, and stop it from appearing in the future.

    Thanks

    Thanks Robert. Bear with me, please ... During Step 1, I ended up getting
    one 'succeeded' message and one 'failed' message. The latter was:
    'LoadLibrary ("wuauapi.dll") failed. The specified module could not be
    found.'

    But I pressed on with Steps 2-4.

    In Windows Update, there were two high priority updates waiting: (1) the
    Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, version 2.0 (KB917283), and (2)
    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1.

    (I didn't know that I had Service Pack 1 on my computer.)

    I tried to install both of these. Both failed.

    What to do, please?

    Thanks - Ken

    Ken again. Actually, at the end of Step 1 there were four 'succeeded'
    messages (I had thought they were all the same) and the one 'failed' message
    that I quoted last time.

    I also have this error--do I really need this software? I have been notified
    over and over that it will not install successfully--I do not want to change
    the registery. Thank you.

    The only way to fix the 0x643 error is to uninstall .net 2.0 and then
    download the setup and reinstall then you will be able to install the patch.
    I think the problem occurs because some registry entries were removed using
    a registry cleaner.

    Thanks, 'Joe935'. What you say sounds very likely. I do have such a
    registry cleaner on my computer which I installed when a young guy on the
    Acer helpdesk (my computer is an Acer laptop) recommended it.

    But further to my last, 'Joe435', unfortunately I have to report that
    although I did exactly as you said, the problem was not solved. So I STILL
    have TWO high priority updates on my computer waiting to be installed: (1)
    the Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, version 2.0 (KB917283), and
    (2) Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1.

    'Ken23' again. (Sorry, 'Joe935', for getting the number part of your ID
    slightly wrong last time!) Both updates are now successfully installed on my
    computer. I rang Microsoft Help here in Australia, and a guy stepped me
    through first uninstalling both .NET Frameworks (2.0 and 1.1) and then
    reinstalling them - and then loading the relevant PATCHES for the two updates
    that are somewhere on the Microsoft Windows Update site. Sorry, I didn't have
    time to note exactly where those patches are - I was strictly following
    directions at the time.

    I tried this but when I click on the file on the desktop to run it, all it
    does is open in the Notepad again. Nothing else happens. What am I doing
    wrong?

  14. Nothing. By default the default operation for the regfile Filetype is
    Merge which invokes regedit.exe but many administrators change it to Edit
    which invokes Notepad.exe. In that case instead of just clicking on the
    file you would need to right-click on it and then (if you were expecting to
    apply the patch) pick Merge.

    I am having this same issue on a Dell Latitude E4300 laptop. I have
    uninstalled, reinstalled, changed the registry, renamed files, deleted files,
    have followed every tip/trick I can find online, but continue to get the
    error when trying to install .NET Framework 2.0 or 3.5 or 3.5 SP1. Has
    anyone found a solution.
