    When I try to install this update for Windows Media Center 2005 the setup
    fails, even when I've downloaded it manually. Removing .net framework 1.1 or
    components wont help.
    Foutcode: 0x643
    What's wrong?

  2. Wytse,

    From http://support.microsoft.com/kb/900325 :

    " Note To install this update, you **must have Microsoft .NET Framework
    1.1 and .NET Framework 1.1 SP1** installed. Windows Update detects
    whether these packages are installed. Windows Update automatically
    installs these packages for you.

    If the 886904 update is installed, you **must uninstall the 886904
    update** before you install Update Rollup 2 for Microsoft Windows XP
    Media Center Edition 2005. Otherwise, the .NET Framework 1.1 SP1
    installation will not succeed. "

    Does that clear things up ?

    I have removed the KB886904 fix and re-installed the .net framework 1.1 SP1.
    The rollup couldn't install.
    I've tried to download the rollup 2 manually from microsoft.com and tried to
    install also manually, but he failed. Then he runs system restore.
    The last message I saw in MCE was that he was installing:
    Hotfix voor Windows XP (KB895961)

    Then he sayd he failed and had to restore.

    hmm, I don't know yet:(

  6. Is there an error message associated with the failed install of the
    Update Rollup ? Who runs System Restore - is the update doing it after
    failing to install ?

    Try this - Show hidden files, folders, and system files :

    Create a temporary folder on the Desktop. Name it Temp. Navigate to the
    WINDOWS\Installer folder. Move all the contents of that folder to the
    newly created Temp folder on the Desktop. Now try to install the Update
    Whether it succeeds or not, move all of the contents of Temp back to
    WINDOWS\Installer afterwards.
    Did that allow it to install ?

    There's no specific error.
    And when I try to install manually (I've Administrator rights) he opens
    Media Center with the message that he's installing. but then suddenly he says
    he failed(no error) and automatically when I press OK runs System Restore.

    Clearing the c:\windows\installer folder wouldn't help:( So I just put
    everything back in.
    Don't know how to solve:(
    btw: some programs I try to install won't install either.
    example: norton internet security 2005 and NOD32 (both no errors)

    I've scanned for spyware found some and deleted ( www.hitmanpro.nl dutch).
    But it has no effect:(
    Any ideas?

    ps. I've always the explorer in the mode he shows everything: hidden or not,
    system or not ;) don't like someone is hiding something for me;)

    Yeah I got it (h)

    first I've removed EVERY update i could find in Add/Remove software in
    Configurationscreen or how you call it in englisch.
    That was a lot of work,
    but after that i runned Windows Update and it worked:)
    I think it has something to do with the ehome infrared thing update i
    earlier had to install, maybe uninstalling worked. but uninstalling every
    update worked
    after that installing .net framework 1.1 and SP1 for .net framework 1.1 of
    course ;)
    Now I must restart...

    Nice detective work, Wytse. Do you remember the KB # of the "ehome
    infrared thing update" ?

    I had the same problem but couldn't identify which update was causing the
    conflict because that would be even more tedious than uninstalling all of the
    updates. Anyway why hadn't someone in microsoft done this already? They have
    identified an issue with one of the .Net updates but they should solved the
    bigger problem by now. You know that old idea that a room full of monkeys
    with typewriters, if left for eternity, will eventually come up with the
    complete works of shakespeare? Well I reckon they'd only need a week to come
    up with windows! Typically sloppy boys.

    Anyway uninstall a load of the updates (until you get pissed off) and try it
    again. Repeat until it works and you should be ok.
