Install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista (Fix RegSvcs.exe Error)

»»»Install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista (Fix RegSvcs.exe Error)

Windows Vista and Windows 7 comes packaged with Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0, but not version 1.1, which may still required by some applications such as QuickBooks 7, GFI Report Packs, VS.NET 2003, InstallShield 11.5, and many other developed software. However, when trying to install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 (dotnetfx.exe) on Windows Vista or Windows 7, one or more error messages similar to one of the following text will appear, and stop or prevent setup installation of .NET Framework 1.1 from continuing successfully.

RegSvcs.exe – Common Language Runtime Debugging Services

Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.
Process id=0xe50 (3664), Thread id=0xd44 (3396).

Click OK to terminate the application.
Click CANCEL to debug the application.

.NET 1.1 Installation Error in Windows

If user click “OK’, the installation of .NET 1.1 will be cancelled, while clicking “CANCEL” produces another error message similar to below:

RegSvcs.exe – No debugger found

Registered JIT debugger is not available. An attempt to launch a JIT debugger with the following command resulted in an error code of 0x2 (s). Please check computer settings.

cardbg.exe !a 9x8e

In Even Viewer of Vista or Windows 7, the following log or similar can be seen:

Source: MsiInstaller
Event ID: 1030
Description:
Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1. The application tried to install a more recent version of the protected Windows file C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\sbs_wminet_utils.dll. You may need to update your operating system for this application to work correctly. (Package Version: 1.0.0.0, Operating System Protected Version: 1.0.0.0).

Source: MsiInstaller
Event ID: 1030
Description:
Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1. The application tried to install a more recent version of the protected Windows file C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\sbs_system.enterpriseservices.dll. You may need to update your operating system for this application to work correctly. (Package Version: 1.0.0.0, Operating System Protected Version: 1.0.0.0).

The error pops up in the end of .NET Framework 1.1 setup when it’s almost finished, and is registering “System.EnterpriseServices.dll” when the error occurs, time remaining for the installation process shows 0 seconds.

Why exactly the error occurs when installing Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 in Windows Vista or Windows 7 is not known, as the issue happens randomly. It may affect both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Vista or Windows 7 system, but not all system will have the issue. But one thing is for sure. Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 (Service Pack 1) has resolved the issue. However, Microsoft does not provide download to standalone .NET Framework 1.1 installer that integrated with SP1.

Thus, the workaround to fix the Microsoft.NET Framework 1.1. installation error on affected Windows system is to slipstream .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 into .NET Framework 1.1 installer, so that both the .NET Framework and the Service Pack can be installed at the same time.

In addition, Microsoft no longer supports .NET Framework 1.1 on the Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 operating systems, and has blocked .NET Framework 1.1 from installing on these systems. If you try to install the package, the following error message is displayed:

Setup cannot continue because this version of the .NET Framework is incompatible with a previously installed one.

.NET Framework 1.1 may also be automatically removed and uninstalled if you upgraded to newer Windows operating system from Windows 7 or Windows Vista.

However, the slipstream .NET Framework 1.1 with SP1 integrated may be able to be used to install .NET Framework 1.1 on to Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and their server equivalents.

To slipstream .NET 1.1 SP1 into .NET Framework setup package to have a integrated .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 installer, follow steps in this trick:

  1. Create a new folder named DotNet in C:\ drive (C:\DotNet is used in this guide, you can change to any folder you prefer, but ensure that you use correct path in the following steps).
  2. Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package (dotnetfx.exe). Make sure the setup file is saved as dotnetfx.exe.
  3. Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 (NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe). Make sure that the file is renamed and saved as dotnetfxsp1.exe, so that the rest of the steps can be followed easily.
  4. Move both installation files into the same directory (i.e. C:\DotNet), if you’re not saving them together.
  5. Open Command Prompt as Administrator.
  6. Change to the directory where the two installation setup files for .NET 1.1 are saved (i.e. C:\DotNet).
  7. Run the following commands one by one, press Enter after each one:
    • dotnetfx.exe /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:\DotNet"

      If you’re not using C:\DotNet directory, change the target to your path accordingly.

      Install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Vista

      Then click on “Yes” when prompted to answer “Would you like to install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1. Package?”

      Wait for the decompression, extraction and setup to complete with the display of the following dialog which says installation complete.

      Install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Vista

    • dotnetfxsp1.exe /Xp:C:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp

      No status message for this step.

      Note
      You may be prompted to install .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) if your system has no .NET Framework installed. Allow the installation of newer version of .NET Framework to proceed.
    • msiexec.exe /a c:\DotNet\netfx.msi /p c:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp

      Install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Vista

      Wait for Windows Installer for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 to finish and disappear automatically.

  8. Install Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 with slipstreamed/integrated Service Pack 1 by running netfx.msi created in the working folder.

  • Nicely documented. This trick worked perfectly for Quickbooks 2007 on Vista.

  • Antelope555

    Thanks man. I've faced similar problem for a while. and after following your slipstream guide to install dot net1.1 I'm able to overcome that error. Kudos to you. Thanks a lot…

  • rob

    Thanks for the fix/workaround.

    Had tried on several occassions to install .net1.1 (dotnet1.1) to vista with no success.

    After the failed attempts, had problems such as:

    .net aleady installed

    patch could not be installed by windows intaller

    etc.

    also I could not find .net in 'control panel/programs and features' to un-install/remove it for a clean install.

    in the end – i cleared the c:dotnet directory which had been created by previous attempts

    downloaded the redistributable from the link above, also the sp1, and tried again.

    it worked.

    good luck to all else who pass this way.

  • Keith

    Well – I have not been as lucky as others on this slipstream trick …

    When I get to the command:

    dotnetfxsp1.exe /Xp:C:DotNet
    etfxsp.msp

    I get the following error:

    "The upgrade cannot be installed by the Windows Installer Service because the program to be upgrade may be missing, or the upgrade may be a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade."

    I get the above error whether I add the /Xp: switch or not which leads me to think that the dotnetfxsp1.exe is not even looking for a switch – it's just tryig to install.

    I've followed the direcions (up to this point) to a tee. What am I doing wrong?

  • admin

    Check your path?

  • nilesh

    I have install both the file to download Net Framwork 1.1 i.e. dotnetfx.exe & dotnetfxsp1.exe, i have also follow up steps but i can not install Net Framwork 1.1 on my Vista base software.

    Nope – same result (error dialog box as above) with my full path or no path (as shown below) …

  • Radgul

    thank you!

    Now I can install ETS3e (needed for KNX/EIB) with Vista lite

  • Christopher Riley

    Brilliant fix. I followed your directions and it works perfectly. thx so much.

  • Matt

    I'm getting the exact same problem as Keiths.

    I have no idea why it won't work.

    The reason it's gone is i had a problem with Lord of the Rings online, and someone said to uninstall and then reinstall .NET framework 1.1, so when i uninstalled it i can't seem to reinstall it.

    I'm using Vista Home Premium (32 bit) if it makes any difference.

  • Jack

    I don't seem to be able to do it. After typing the first command, I pressed enter and it wrote: "dotnetfx.exe is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

  • admin

    Have you change directory to where it's located?

  • Jack

    i used C:DotNet

  • JingLing

    Thank you so very much for this workaround. I have successfually installed QuickBooks 2007 Pro on Vista Business version without any problem.

    This .NET 1.1 installation error has bothered me over 6 months and I had to run Quickbooks on XP virtual machines!

  • parag

    great man it worked now i can install dotnet framework 1.1 dependent applications

    thanks a lot

  • Marcus

    Hi there.

    I have the same issue with vista. After reading through the above, can you teach me how I can rename this file as described above?

    NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe

    Could you kindly help me?

    Thanks.

    Marcus

  • Kylie

    i have the same problem as jack…i used C:DotNet folder and everything and i get "dotnetfx.exe is not recognized as an internal or external, operable program or batch file." how do i fix???

  • Thanks, working great on my lappy.

  • Ashwin

    I am indeed grateful for the solution. It worked without a hitch.

    I do not know why Microsoft is suddenly abandoning .NET framework1.1 like a hot potato when it is prepared to support VB6- a much earlier product.

    Thanks once again

    Ashwin B Pandya

  • any chance of modifying this to work w/ XP Pro?

    I've been glued to my screens for the past 4 daze trying to either Uninstall or Reinstall any or all .NET Frame. It's become corrupted & Microsoft can't help & it seems none of my geek friends can either.

    HELP!?

  • Binod

    Sir,

    I have failed in completing the trick. On running the last command under instruction no. 7 the following message is appearing:-

    "Window cannot find 'C:DotNetmsiexec.exe /a c:DotNet
    etfx.msi /p c:DotNet
    etfxsp.msp'

    Please help me as soon as possible. I will be very grateful to you.

    Regards,

    BK Sharma

  • when i press dotnetfx.exe and press enter then it comes it is not the external and internal command.batch file

    so please help me in downloading the dotnetfx 1.1

  • Bk Sharma,

    What u can do is, download the entire files needed, and save it to your "C:" folder, and run the command

    C:DotNetmsiexec.exe /a c:
    etfx.msi /p c:
    etfxsp.msp’

  • 1koolfella

    Thanks!!!

    This worked like a charm. These directions couldn't be any clearer.

    I had to use this for a client that needed .net 1.1 to run a realtime market data application.

    You save my job from being moved to India, for about another week. lol.

  • thank you so much

  • How far along in the PC industry would Microslop be if they had the precise, up to date, and understandable documentation that I found on this page?

    My thanks to the author and researcher.

    thnx a heap…

  • Thanks

    I really needed this..

  • Thanks a lot! While this tutorial targets the .NET Framework installation on Vista, it solved my problem with installing .NET on Windows NT SP6a where I had the same error message you mentioned. πŸ™‚

  • dfx

    Thank you! Very helpful πŸ™‚

  • milton

    thanks a million. i also have another solution because in the commnd prompt i got an error saying for the dotnet.exe path not found or unrecognized command error. so i closed command prompt and ran dotfx.exe in the dotfx directory. i got the is this installed correctly popup but i said it was installed correctly. and it did not popup again. afterwards i went to the system tray and hit the installed update icon and ran that then it said that net 1.1 was installed correctly.

  • Jonathan

    Thank you thank you thank you very very very much… It helps me alot, I got troubled when I tried the WinXP SP3 with the Google Sketchup that needs dotnet framework 1.1. A million thanks!

  • Nikunj

    Thanks!!! I can finally install softwares bought 2 years back…hehe

    By the way, this works like a dream…cheers

  • Thanks a lot for this. Do you know if there is a similar workaround for installing the .NET Framework 1.0 on Vista. Using this fix I successfully installed Visual Studio 2003. I now need to install Visual Studio 2002, or I am going to trash this Vista crap and go back to XP.

    Yeah…

    The first command appears here in two lines

    make sure you copy paste it as one

  • MaxyDawg

    Thanks clawgr, but I have another question. If I follwed all the steps correctly, is step 8 just a description of the result?

  • Saravanan

    Thanks a million! It worked like a song!!

  • plz help on this

    what do u mean when u say

    Change to the directory where the two installation setup files for .NET 1.1 are saved (i.e. C:DotNet).

  • Dave

    Thanks for the post! This worked like a charm. I am running Vista Business and also had another .NET 1.1 patch that was giving me problems (KB929729), so I just followed your instructions and also slipstreamed that update with 1.1 and 1.1 SP1, and it worked. Thanks a bunch!

  • Thanks man… your instructions have been a life-saver. πŸ™‚

    I have the same problem as keith and tried it using the vista business (KB929729) mentioned later. Sorry Keith. Maybe a year late but is there any difference in what's needed between different brands. I'm using Ultimate, I thought it was more compatible with business, and I have SP1 installed. Any help? Plus, I messed up and completely manually deleted all of my other "nets" and can get the damned things to reinstall. Any help for 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 would be well appreciated. I keep getting a NGEN problem.

    @Kev

    i got the same problem. i was able to solve it by following instructions AS IS except for the very first step which says: "(C:DotNet is used in this guide, you can change to any folder you prefer, but ensure that you use correct path in the following steps)."

    at first i used a different directory, followed the file naming, but still got stuck on the 3rd command in step 7. then i used the exact folder name as stated (c:DotNet) and it worked.

    I assume that the command:

    etfxsp.msp

  • GeogeoJer

    thank you for your help. its been great help for me.

  • Robert

    This is no doubt great, too bad I can't get it to work correctly. Like another poster in these comments, I wanted to get this to work because Lord of the Rings Online demands it. I'm running Vista 64-bit.

    I got through the initial steps, but once I hit the second command in Step 7, nothing happens. I think the NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe package isn't compatible with a 64-bit OS, as nothing happens when I try to run it like a normal application and I can't even get the command list for it if I do a /? in the command prompt.

    Microsoft's site claims this package is supported by Vista 64, but I'm not sure if I can trust that. Is there some other file I could try using as a replacement or some alternative method?

    If anyone can help, it would be appreciated.

    I need help! When I type in the cmd

    i get dotnextfx.exe is not regonized as a internal or external command, or recognizable program or batch file.

  • Umang

    Perfect!

  • Umang

    @Dillon, just add the directory C:DotNet in the windows Path. go to it through the vista control panel -> search for system path and edit the system environment variables and click on advanced and add it into the Path variable…did the trick for me.

  • Pankaj

    i cant get it ur commands…its not working.

  • Trevor

    Thank you very much. This is perfect.

  • Dre

    I could not get the commands to work. All i got to work was the first command which is dotnetfx.exe which just opens the installer and brings me back to square 1 where i get the unhandeld exception error. I do not know what im doing wrong im following the instructions but i cannot get the rest of the commands to work in the first set . Can i get some help please? ive been cracking my head open trying to solve this ridiculous problem just to get a software running.

  • Dre

    Let me just clarify on the previous thread. i cannot get these commands to work. i do not understand them.

    /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:DotNet"

  • Dre

    Scratch that, after spending the whole day trying to figure it out, i realized that whole string of commands is really one command. i just got confused when it said, Type Enter after each of these commands. It worked brilliantly . Thank you

  • Linda G.

    Please help me! I got down to downloading the two programs as intrusted in your tutorial, but when I get to inputting the command prompts I can't do it! I can't get rid of the ">" that's after my name to input the path. It won't let me delete what's automatically there and I can't change it at all! What do I do? Thank you!

    This has me crying, I'm so frustrated. I've done what you say – multiple times. It will not respond! I keep getting the same error that it doesn't work with a 64bit system. At the admin/command prompt, it tells me the commands aren't valid (I've used every version of these commands, including just trying to put in C: and it won't even validate that).

    Like Linda G.

    Linda G. and Brighid,

    use "cd C:DotNet" (not counting the "). The directory should switch to C:DotNet.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi and Thank you!

    This tutorial finally let me install .net 1.1 SP1 into windows 7.

    "NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe"

    appreciate this writeup.

  • Ant

    Thanks a whole lot. This saved me a whole lot of trouble. Really appreciate your help.

  • jeremy

    hey i have problem with the command prompt part. i cant get it right. i need some help asap pls!

  • Mesmith

    It shows errors in the form of compatibility warnings in Windows 7 64bit but seems to still allow the required application to operate, but it might effect some services associated with IIS on the box (according to the warning) The application I was running works like a charm now. I'm curious now if once the new MSI is created it's portable so you don't have to redo this and can just make this a part of an install procedure for workstations that require the old .net version.

  • BK

    Awsome, thank for the fix. Now I can use my outdated software that comes with my Omron BP monitor and pedometer… Hoo-rah!

  • Steven Mailloux

    Well I've tried many solutions and I finally tried yours, unfortunately, still nothing works. I can't get .net framework 1.1 to install. I'm using Vista Home Premium, 32bit.

  • you sir are all sorts of awesome! thanks for this!

  • I used this on Windows 7.

    To change the directory in cmd: c:DotNet

    After running the commands given above, go into your DotNet folder located in C:/ and run netfx which is the installer application you just created.

    Finally! It took me 6 hours to figure this out.

  • Yetzirah

    Hi, the commands work fine and all, but when it comes to running netfx.msi it rolls back at the end anyway so I am kinda stuck at the moment…

    Is there any other way too do this ?

    still its a great tutorial..

  • Orhan

    The last command does not work.

    It tells me the following:

    "This patch package could not be opened.

    Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package."

    I'm not computer illiterate, I know that I'm doing everything correctly.

    Still for some reason I can't figure this out.

    I extracted both executables to see if I could find "netfxsp.msp", but it doesn't exist.

    Perhaps this could be the culprit?

    I'd be grateful if someone with a greater knowledge could share their thoughts.

  • dvj

    Hi i'm gettin this prob too …

    “This patch package could not be opened.

  • Rolz

  • imket

    you are the best! very good instructions!

    would help if you mentioned to use "cd.." to get to directory, and "cd DotNet" to change directorys, but with a little research, my problem is all solved =D

  • ash

    I am getting the same error as others have after entering the following command on step 7: msiexec.exe /a c:DotNet
    etfx.msi /p c:DotNet
    etfxsp.msp

    THIS PATCH PACKAGE COULD NOT BE OPENED. VERIFY THAT THE PATCH PACKAGE EXISTS AND THAT YOU CAN ACCESS IT, OR CONTACT THE APPLICATION VENDOR TO VERIFY THAT THIS IS A VALID WINDOWS INSTALLER PATCH PACKAGE

    Has anyone received a reply or know the cause/solution for this problem?

  • Bugerion

    I tryed it but idk what to enter in conosle i copy that what says but nothing dosent work will someone write exectly what to write???????????

  • ivan

    FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE HAVING PROBLEM WITH

    "THIS PATCH PACKAGE COULD NOT BE OPENED. VERIFY THAT THE PATCH PACKAGE EXISTS AND THAT YOU CAN ACCESS IT, OR CONTACT THE APPLICATION VENDOR TO VERIFY THAT THIS IS A VALID WINDOWS INSTALLER PATCH PACKAGE"

    after typing the correct commands, try to clean up your system processes first.

    I also encounter this problem.

    what I did was I run the "Task Manager", then I closed all the processes that might involved "msi" or any other processes that you think might be related to net framework installation. Or better yet, restart your system to close any other processes that are running but you dont have know that they are running.

    after doing that I was able to install the Framework 1.1.

    HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU.. πŸ˜€

  • Phil

    REGARDING the FOLLOWING line:

    msiexec.exe /a c:DotNet
    etfx.msi /p c:DotNet
    etfxsp.msp

    the "netfxsp.msp" file could be different in your machine.

    HERE'S WHAT I DID TO FIX IT:

    went to the c:DotNet file and saw it was "netxp.msp". Hence, the "s" was missing so i change the command line accordingly.

  • Larry

    Awsome, Thanks for the directions and all those who followed up on them. A tip to the others. If you are stuck, just Google what you are trying to do and you will find more directions such as how to do command prompts or open the System Admin Command Prompt window.

  • Jimmy

    worked a charm!! thanks for that!!

  • Roomi

    Please, someone help me with this. my problem is that i keep getting this regsvcs.exe error on installing .net. which led me to this site.

    I'm using XP pro.

    i have followed everything, and am stuck at the second command which says upgrade patch cant be installed due to different ver or something missing.

    can someone please advise. All i need is to run a photoediting application 'Capture NX'

  • GuZ

    Thanks, this was very helpful πŸ™‚ This is working also under Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. Needed the instructions for pdfcreator which has a pdf signing library that'll only be installed once .Net 1.1 is present.

    There is a security warning though during installation wich claimes that IIS services could be affected when the slipstreamed netfx.msi is about to be installed. I cannot verify this as i do not use IIS on the machine anyway. Therefore I ignored the warning and have no problems and can sign PDFs now 8)

  • slick

    hi there. i followed the step accordingly. but i still have the same problem. my problem is not about regsvcs.exe. i dont know what it is. my os just blocks the installation after the first command on no.7. it just says compatibility problems.

    my os is windows7 ultimate 64bit preactivated.

    please guys. i need help. i want to play nba 2k10 πŸ˜€

    thanks in advance

  • slick

    hi again guys. this is what im saying.

    this is whats happening after i click yes on the

    “would you like to install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1. Package?”

    http://s47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/khupzslick/?action=view&current=error.jpg&newest=1

    i hope you can help me. i dont really know much about things like these so im hoping that you have a solution. thanks very much πŸ˜€

  • Coldfire

    1>Just download both files(link provied in 2nd and 3 step).

    2>Make a folder in C drive and place both files in it.

    3>Rename 2nd file(named "NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe")as "dotnetfxsp1.exe"(.exe is not required if file extension is hidden).

    4>Now double click on dotnetfx.exe….

    And now complete your instaletion…

  • Mkh

    My control panel says my 1.1 is installed, but why isn't the program that requires it working?

  • sinip

    If anyone runs into the same install problem with Windows XP SP3, well, the trick works in that case too. Thanks a lot!

  • Sharan

    Thanks a LOT for this fix. I was trying to install NBA 2K10 on my Win 7 Ultimate when i got this .net error. This fix was like a God-send for me ! Thank you so much for this. Followed all instructions and it worked like a charm !

    Thanks again :]

  • ron

    Verify that you have access to the directory."

  • David

    Thank you! I've been struggling with this problem in Vista on and of for a couple of months. Just a word of caution about getting into the problem in the first place – I use the freeware utility Revo Uninstaller, and when I went to upgrade .NET, Revo showed it as an option you could uninstall – so I did. Big mistake, and it's taken until now and finding this fix to sort it out.

  • dave

    Hi, I must be missing something. #7 you say enter the following commands.

    7.Run the following commands one by one, press Enter after each one.

    Where does one command end and the next one start?

    Run the following commands one by one, press Enter after each one.

    * dotnetfx.exe /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:DotNet"

    I went to the c:DotNet dir

    Shift Right click in the right pane

    click in the pop up "open Command window here

    type

    dotnetfx.exe /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:DotNet"

    All 1 line

  • Captain Shiny

    The above mentioned problem also happened to me with Windows Xp SP3. The solution still works, though. It even works with dotnet 1.0 the same way as with 1.1. You have to install the frameworks in the order of the version numbers to get all of them installed.

    So it works…alot! Thanks for the great workaround!

  • David

    to start with download the 2 files you need as stated in the tutorial then rename as they say then go to my computer c drive double left click then right click to make a new folder and name it DotNet then cut & paste the 2 files

    you downloaded into that folder then its time to open command prompt. to open command prompt go to your windows start button and in the search box start typing cmd right click the icon and run as administrator.

    For those Having trouble on step 7 make sure you do step 6 corectly by copying & pasting the following into command prompt and press enter:

    “cd C:DotNet” (not counting the “).

    The directory should switch to

    C:DotNet.

    Then copy and paste the following into command prompt and press enter:

    dotnetfx.exe /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:DotNet"

    it will ask if you would like to install etc push yes etc etc, then once thats finished go back to the folder where you put your 2 original files and you will see an install application named netfx you double click it and follow the steps to install it then thats it your all done hope this helps

    when opening command prompt ensure you right click and open as administrator

    hey, so I followed this step by step from beginning to end (almost) I started from scratch twice and both times I've done this I get to the final step;

    msiexec.exe /a c:DotNetnetfx.msi /p c:DotNetnetfxsp.msp

    It comes up with an error telling me to verify that I can access

    C:DotNetWinMicrosoft.NETFrameworkURTInstallPathaspnet_isapi.dll

    which I can.

    gives me 3 options "cancel" "retry" "ignore" if I click ignore it takes that button away and if I click retry it just comes right back. no matter how many times I hit it it comes back. Any Ideas how to fix it?

    • bill dietz

      Before anything else, go to the Start menu, type in the Search Box “cmd”. When the Command Prompt appears, right click the icon and select Run as Administrator. When the command prompt window will appear, make sure that the label says C:WindowsSystem32, if the label does not say so, you are not running as Administrator. Follow the instructions because I have tested it and it works fine. You will never wrong, its a great job and it really works. Good Luck . . .

    Also is there a way to confirm if the .Net framwork 1.1 is installed correctly or not.

    We have a custom application and it doesnt work!!!

      An additional comment, I am trying this on Windows 7 Enterprise !.. Any help is highly appreciated.

      Alternately, we have a custom application developed in 1.1 with local security policies to allow the windows application to work over the web!!!! So what is the possibility or changes requried to make this work in .Net 2.0
