.Net Framework 4 error: Generic trust failure

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I'm having the same issue as a lot of other people.  I've downloaded the standalone installed for the .Net Framework 4 (dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe) and tried installing it both by simply double-clicking the executable and right clicking > Run as Administrator.  Neither are working, they both give the same error, "Generic trust failure."  I've gathered my logs and uploaded them to my personal site, they are located here:


I guess the installer chose my H: drive as the file xtraction drive, since it's the largest fixed drive (well, the most free space.)  Here are a few lines from dd_dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64_decompression_log.txt:

[6/25/2010, 10:24:15] Drive 'H:\' has been selected as the largest fixed drive
[6/25/2010, 10:24:15] Directory 'H:\d1f8e660ffe46cc42cb6\' has been selected for file extraction
[6/25/2010, 10:24:15] Extracting files to: H:\d1f8e660ffe46cc42cb6\
[6/25/2010, 10:24:23] Extraction took 8.440 seconds
[6/25/2010, 10:24:23] Executing command line: 'H:\d1f8e660ffe46cc42cb6\\Setup.exe  /x86 /x64'

Then I took a look in the .net installer-generated HTML log file, and the lines of interest are at the very bottom:

Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Client Profile installation error: (0x800B010B), "Generic trust failure "


I'm currently using a window 7 64 bit operating system fujitsu laptop and I've been trying to install a update: 'Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB2160841)'. However, upon many tries of installing the update, i still couldn't get it install. The error details for the update is Code 66A.

Therefore, after searching on Windows forum for solution for that error, i've tried to repair the Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Client Profile by following these steps:

A. Click on Start and click on Control panel.

B. Go to Program and Features.

C. Scroll down to Microsoft.Net Framework 4 Client Profile, right click it.

D. It will give you a choice of Uninstall/Change, click it.

E. Then, it will give a choice to repair.

After following the above steps, the repair did not succeed because: Generic trust failure.

Error installing .NET Framwork 4.0 on Windows XP (Generic Trust Failure)


I have been attempting to install the .NET 4.0 Framework on a Windows XP box.

I have recieved several errors, but with completely cleaning out any remains of 4.0 in an attempt to reinstall, we continue to get the 0x800B010B Generic trust failure error.

Below are the steps and attempts I took to trying to resolve the problem. The solutions were all based on other suggestions here in the forum and elsewhere on the web:

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.

Localize framework message from xml validation error


I need to validate an XML through XSD. I am using XMLReader (with XmlReaderSettings and 

Validation_EventHandler to do it). Depend on users preference, I would like to change the output message generated by  Validation_EventHandler in french or english.

Any idea on how to perform this?

Do You Trust It?: Discover Techniques for Safely Hosting Untrusted Add-Ins with the .NET Framework 2


When you allow your application to run arbitrary code through an add-in, you may expose users to unknown code, running the risk that malicious code will use your application as an entry point into the user's data. There are several techniques you can use to reduce the attack surface of your application, which Shawn Farkas discusses here.

Getting generic GDI error when trying to save resized image

Getting following error:A generic error occurred in GDI+.
Any help is appreciated.
Public Sub SaveImageFile(ByVal sourceImage As Bitmap, ByVal saveImagePath As [String], ByVal maxImageWidth As Integer)
            ' Resize if source image width is greater than the max:

            If sourceImage.Width > maxImageWidth Then
                Dim bmp As Bitmap = TryCast(sourceImage, Bitmap)
                Dim newImageHeight As Integer = CInt(Math.Truncate(sourceImage.Height * (CSng(maxImageWidth) / CSng(sourceImage.Width))))
                Dim gr As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bmp)

                Dim bmpnew As New Bitmap(maxImageWidth, newImageHeight)
                gr.InterpolationMode = InterpolationMode.HighQualityBicubic

                gr.DrawImage(bmpnew, 0, 0, maxImageWidth, newImageHeight)

Writing Bitmap to Response.OutputStream - Generic Error Occured in GDI+



This is what I'm trying to do when I get the error on the server (it works on my local machine):

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image); 

Response.ContentType = "image/bmp";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);

I don't think it can be a permissions problem because this works on the server:

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image);

Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

So how do I get this to work for a bitmap?

Net Framework 1.0 Error 1904 during setup mscoree.dll H-result 2146232576

I cleaned off all my .Net framework files with the .Net framework cleaner. I then started at 3.5, installed it, went well, installed 3.0, went well, installed 2.0, went well, installed 1.1, went well, then, tried to install 1.0 redistribution package for my windows xp home and it stopped at almost the very end saying ERROR installing 1.0 ERROR 1904 system32\mscoree.dll failed to register. H-result 2146232576. I tried renaming it and installing the 1.0 again but still get the same error. i tried using the IGNORE option, it said it installed but i know the mscoree.dll isn't working. i used the installer cleanup tool also to no avail. i deleted the URTTemp folder and tried a reinstall. This didn't work either. Anyone know what I might can do to get this corrected? I have not done anything myself in the registry. I have used RegCure and registry mechanic but Net Framework 1.0 still gave the error when I tried to install. Any help appreciated. I did read something about 1.1, 2.0,3.0 or 3.5 might have a newer mscoree.dll file and that night be why I can't register the one I have. I need the 1.0 version 3705 though as one of my programs uses it. Also, i am now not able to put any of the updates on my computer. it downloads them but they fail to install. Example, net framework 2.o service pack 2, net framework 3.5 service pack 1, and net framework 3.5 family update. Thanks....
