    Why do these always have issues installing?

    I attempted to uninstall the .Net Framework 1.1 and it asked me for a
    netfx.msi file but there was none to be found. I could not even uninstall
    the update. The thing is this was done on a brand new fresh install too.
    Any ideas?

  2. How to troubleshoot Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 installation issues

    Sometimes patches can prompt for the original installation media (asking the user for
    the location of netfx.msi). This can happen when MSI determines that the original
    product has missing or corrupt files, which are not included in the patch package.

    Repairing or reinstalling the original product fixes this issue, so in your case, we
    specifically need to repair the .NET Framework 1.1.

    If you already have the .NET Framework 1.1 installation package, feel free
    to skip this section to step 9:
    Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package
    1. Please click the following link or copy and paste it into your Internet
    browser address window:
    2. Please click the Download button and save it to a directory you will
    3. Please uncheck the box "Close this dialog box when download is complete"
    4. Click Start
    5. Click Run
    6. Type: cmd <Enter>
    7. In the Command Prompt, type: cd (target directory path)
    8. Verify you are in the correct directory for this file by typing: dir
    dotnetfx.exe <Enter> and make sure it lists the file.

    Repairing .NET Framework:

    9. Still in the command line, and now in the proper directory, type: del /y
    %temp%\* <Enter>
    10. Type or copy and paste the following:
    dotnetfx.exe /t:%temp% /c:"msiexec.exe /fvecms %temp%\netfx.msi" <Enter>
    (note: be sure to use the quotes.)

    For example:
    dotnetfx.exe /t:%temp% /c:"msiexec.exe /fvecms %temp%\netfx.msi"

    11. Please try to install the update KB886903 from your direct download one
    more time, and let us know if this works out for you.
