    James - if you look at my post KB982524.Net update on 24 June - see if
    either/both 976576 and 977354 are in Add/Remove - it appears that one gets
    two for the price of one dll/install.
    Have you tried installing with the 'long way round'?

    I have the same problem. I could install KB977354 manually but KB976576 is
    not available in standalone. KB982524 fails with error 0x643 with Microsoft
    Update and when I attempt a manual install. I have cleared the update cache
    and run Microsoft Update again with the update still failing. Does anyone
    have a solution yet?

    TIA,
    Rob

    Not sure how useful this will be, but today KB982524 repeatedly failed to
    install on my machine. It's been said there is no standalone for this update,
    but there is. I got the XP 32-bit standalone .exe for it from here:

    http://download.microsoft.com/downl...1-B84E-90EAB1DE3EC8/NDP30SP2-KB982524-x86.exe

    When first trying to run this, I got a "File is corrupt" message. Downloaded
    it again & it installed OK. Went back to Microsoft Update & thankfully it
    says I'm up to date.

    I've seen very elaborate instructions suggesting a complete uninstall of
    ..NET Framework, with incremental reinstallations of each update is the only
    solution. Fortunately, that seems unnecessary.

    I have the same problem. Every time I try to install .NET Framework 3.0 -
    KB982524 it fails, the little yellow shield goes away.... but it keeps coming
    back daily. I try again, and again it fails to install. I tried going to
    the Microsoft web site, finding KB982524 and manually downloading and
    installing. That didn't work either. It would download, but the install
    would fail.

  7. That's the second reason that you're doing a manual install. If it fails,
    you can now have much better diagnostics about the failure. Hint: among
    all the files that the update creates or adds to look for an msi log or
    maximize it by rerunning the install with a verbose switch on your command
    line. Etc. BTW if you're not sure about how to find all of the changed
    files (e.g., I don't think you can use Windows Search any more for this) you
    can use ProcMon to capture any Operation Contains WRITE made by the
    update's process name. FWIW I usually find dir/a/s/ta | sort
    sufficient (e.g. in a cmd window) but I have my time and date set up to
    enable that sort (e.g. Date YYYY-MM-DD and time HH:MM:SS -- ISO date and
    24 hour with zero filled values. )


    Good luck

  8. Let us know when you figure out what clicking that little + sign does. But
    you better do it before Thursday when MS is 86'ing this and many other
    newsgroups.

    I'm having the same problem. It fails everytime I have tried to install the update.

    What's the problem and who can help me fix it?

    I'm not a computer professional, but I am very computer literate.
