I repeatedly got the following error messages when attempting to install .Net Framework 4.0 on Windows 7 Professional x64:Log Name: SetupSource: Microsoft-Windows-WUSAEvent ID: 3Task Category: NoneLevel: ErrorKeywords: Description:Windows update could not be installed because of error 2359302 "" (Command line: "wusa.exe "C:\79021cf737df094c5735\Windows6.1-KB958488-v6001-x64.msu" /quiet /norestart")This error was listed in the msi install log:Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile -- Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed.I was able to get the framework installed by going into the MSIServer registry key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\MSIServer) and changing WOW64 from 1 to 0. I haven't been able to locate any good documentation for this value & its purpose, is this an acceptable way of getting this installed, and will it cause any problems in the future? Should I change the value back to 1? I have other machines with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate installed that did not have any problems with the 4.0 framework installation.
