    Over the last several days I have tried to get the update shown below to
    work and it always fails. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Jim

    The fix has been posted in several threads. Basically you need to
    clean out all version of Framework and reinstall them including the
    service packs prior to updating.

    You need windows installer cleanup tool and the framework removal tool
    to remove Framework. You can directly download the Framework packages
    including the service packs, install them then do the update.

    The problem you have I suspect is that you do not have SP1 installed.
    I know it would seem easier to just install the service pack then the
    update but that does not work, you need to start from scratch.

    All I had to do was download dotnetfx and run it and I was able to complete
    my updates.

    Why isn't there a relatively simple fix for this problem? Doesn't Microsoft
    read these postings? Where do I find dotnetfx?

    Thanks, Jim

    Hey Jim,
    I went to the site you suggested and downloaded the file shown. No success.
    Any more ideas?
    Thanks, Jim

    A1. You *need* to open a free Support Incident! That's how they determine
    the number of "dead bodies", not from newsgroup posts.

    Start a free Windows Update support incident request:

    Tip: Temporarily disable real-time protection by your anti-virus and/or
    anti-spyware applications (e.g., CounterSpy, Spysweeper, Spybot, AVG
    Anti-Spyware) and/or any third-party firewall (e.g., ZA).

    A2. Download details: Uninstall Cleanup Tool for the .NET Framework 1.0 and
    ..NET Framework 1.1 updates KB928366, KB929729, and KB928367:

    I think it is due to abscence of .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1

    Following step worked fo me:

    Uninstall .NET Framework 1.1, I did not uninstall ver 2.0.
    Ran windows installer cleanup
    Empty C:\windows\SoftwareDistribution
    Re-installed .NET Framework 1.1, then Service Pack 1
    Windows update page to check for any update, here it found update "Security
    Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1
    Installed successfully

    Hope it may resolve other's problem
