Cool...

So Jeff, I'm currently beta testing XP Pro on my wife's laptop (just kidding)... anyway, how do I get .NET framework service pack 1 to install? It downloads from the Windows Update site with no problems but a few minutes into the install it stops and says it encountered problems and was not installed. The laptop is fully updated and patched without problems except for this update. My other computers had no problems with this update.
Any ideas? TIA

Try downloading the fullfile: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
It will usually get you around the occasional Microsoft Update glitch. Just download and run...

Oops.. I should have been more specific. .NET framework 3.5 service pack 1 is the one that won't install. Versions 1 and 2 installed with no problems. This laptop just won't accept the newer version.

I am not Microsoft tech support, so bear with me as I try to find a solution to your problem tcpfl. First off try downloading it manually from Download details: .NET Framework 3.5 Service pack 1 rather than Windows Updater. Secondly, be sure that you have Windows Installer 3.1 installed on your computer. You may also want to take a look around the following forums for people with a similar issue. I looked at a few of the threads regarding problems installing this SP and there are a few Microsoft MVPs giving out advice on the matter- .NET Framework Setup : .NET Development : MSDN Forums
Let me know how it goes.

Okay, it didn't work with the bootstrap or the full version. Both start to install and after a short time stop with a message saying the program encountered problems and then it wants to send an error report to Microsoft.

I know you probably have better things to do than to try to figure this out and the laptop works fine without the update so I'm not going to worry about it.

Thanks for your help anyway

Bummer those fixes didnít help you Tom. I'd dig around that TechNet forum when you feel the urge to give it a whirl again. Nice dolphin fish in your signature picture by the way.
Chazz- I have not seen any plans in the hopper for a hostile takeover but Iíll keep my eyes peeled

You, vulnerable? Bwahaaaa!! Actually, the browser has come a long way from I.E. 6.0 or even 7.5. In over 15+ years of surfing the net, I've never once had a virus, trojan, worm, adware, spyware, malware or anything else and I've been using every incarnation of I.E.

It realy comes down to surfing habits
