Loop Installing .NET 1.1 SP1 when .NET 2.0 also installed

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by TwisterCentral, Nov 29, 2007.

  1. On XP SP2 I get into a loop where updates
    are continuously available, and the .NET 1.1 SP1
    continuously fails. I see that I also have .NET 2.0 installed.
    I see there is a KB article on .NET 1.1 installation issues:
    How to troubleshoot Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 installation issues

    However, Is it necessary to have both .NET 1.1 and 2.0

    Is that part of the problem?

    I'm not an expert here but I use Vista and had a problem with the latest
    Update for NET 1.1.
    I uninstalled it, the problem went away. Since I didn't know much, well,
    anything, about NET 1.1 I posted a question at
    microsoft.public.dotnet.framework and rec'd the following:

    Any applications which require the .NET framework should make it easy
    to get hold of - but as you're running Vista, you'll still have 3.0
    installed even if you've uninstalled 1.1. Having 1.1 installed can be
    useful very occasionally if you've got an app which has some
    compatibility issues with later versions of the framework - but such
    apps are *relatively* few and far between.

    that pertains to me.

    Yep, I'm having the same issue with XP SP2. I've e-mailed MSN and haven't
    gotten any reply yet. Judging by the number of posts from yesterday and
    today it appears there's an obvious issue with the software.

    Yup, me too with XP SP2, judging by the# of related posts it looks like
    there's an issue with the update, not us.

    I downloaded manually as well, and that worked. I am still curious
    about why Microsoft's automated update didn't work.
