Framework 3.5 SP1 will not load on Windows 7

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
I really need to upgrade from SQLSERVER 2005 Express to 2008 Express.   However, when I try to install, it tells me I must apply SP1 to Framework 3.5.    I have tried everything I could find in the documentation including removing Framework 2.0.   I downloaded the Windows Uninstaller program intending to just uninstall Framework 3.5, but it appears it uninstalls 50 - 60 programs if you run it.   What is so frustrating is that when I try to run the SP1 for Framework 3.5, it never gives a single message but just immediately drops back to the window from which I selected it.   I have tried  RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR with the same results.   I turned on the error logging in the WINDOWS INSTALLER in the registry, but I can not find any MSI*.log file to review for help.    Can anyone give me some guidance on this?

I have Visual Studio 2008 loaded and desire to get the Microsoft Web Developer loaded (which requires sql2008) and I am stuck on getting SP1 installed on the framework 3.5 before I can proceed to the next step.   I should also mention that I need 64 bit version, and I only find one sp1 for Framework 3.5 (dotnetfx35setup.exe).

Safety in Windows: Manage Access to Windows Objects with ACLs and the .NET Framework


Until now, Microsoft did not provide explicit support in the .NET Framework for manipulating security settings. With the .NET Framework 1.x, access can only be granted to users via a series of cumbersome P/Invoke calls. By introducing the concepts of security objects and rules, the .NET Framework 2.0 allows developers to manipulate security settings of objects in a few easy steps using managed code.

Mobility: Add Keyboard Support to Compact Framework Apps by Trapping Windows Messages


The Compact Framework Control class doesn't provide direct access to Windows messages. However, with P/Invoke, a few lines of native code, and the Compact Framework MessageWindow class, it's still possible to access underlying Windows messages. This can be used to work around any .NET Framework features, including keyboard support, that are not included in the Compact Framework.

Windows Shell: Create Namespace Extensions for Windows Explorer with the .NET Framework


Extending the Windows shell with namespace extensions allows you to create some custom functionality for Windows Explorer. One common use is to enable Explorer to present a list of items that do not exist in one real folder, but actually reside in a number of places. The view on the folder makes it look like these items are in one place, so managing them becomes easier. This article illustrates the process of creating custom shell namespace extensions using C# and the .NET Framework. The author dispels some myths about the difficulty of writing such extensions, and shows that it is easier than it was before .NET. Along the way he outlines undocumented interfaces and describes advanced techniques for consuming them in .NET.

Cutting Edge: Windows Hooks in the .NET Framework


If you wanted to, you could distinguish two general categories of classes in the Microsoft® . NET Framework-classes that introduce new functionality such as XML readers and ADO. NET providers, and collections and classes that wrap underlying Win32® system functions.

Windows Forms: Developing Compelling User Controls that Target Forms in the .NET Framework


In the beginning, writing controls meant dealing with Windows messages. Then came Visual Basic controls, which introduced methods, properties, and events. Later, ActiveX controls, which ran atop COM, became popular. While each innovation in control writing brought more flexibility, nothing has matched the versatility of the new .NET Windows Forms controls and Web Forms controls. This article, the first of a two-part series, introduces the reader to Windows Forms, beginning with their inheritance from one of the .NET CLR base classes, which makes control creation much faster than before. Control programming is illustrated through the development of a login control. The equally flexible Web Forms controls will be covered in Part 2.

Windows CE: Develop Handheld Apps for the .NET Compact Framework with Visual Studio .NET


Smart Device Extensions (SDE) for Visual Studio .NET allow programmers to develop applications for the .NET Compact Framework, a new platform that maintains many of the features of the .NET Framework in a version optimized for handheld devices. This article shows how SDE provides access through Visual Studio .NET to a variety of .NET classes for devices running Windows CE, including classes for creating user interfaces. Data access classes and Web Services for the .NET Compact Framework are also explained. Following that overview, a sample Web Service called XMLList is built. Then the UI-the XMLList client-side application-is created.

Cant uninstall Framework Language Pack on Windows 7 Professional

Hi,I have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed on a Windows 7 Professional that has been upgraded from a Windows Vista business. I have a Danish Language Pack installed (Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Language Pack SP1 - Danish). This was installed under Vista. Now I have upgraded to Windows 7 Professional where that language pack is unsupported apparantly. I'm trying to get help in a Windows 7 forum to change the OS language but it seems to fail because multiple MUI's is unsupported in Windows 7 Professional. So I hope someone here can help me remove the Language Pack or something like that...When I try to uninstall or reinstall the Language Pack I get an error saying that the OS isn't supported. What I want is to have my exceptions in English - not Danish. I cannot remove the Framework Language Pack using "Windows Installer Clean Up" because it isn't listed. How can I remove this language pack? Or alternatively instruct the Framework to give me Exceptions in the "en-US" localization?--

I installed .net FrameWork 4.0 (for Vista/Windows 7) and my Desktop Font is BOLD! (sometimes)

So at first, I installed the below: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992&displaylang=en Which is .net framework 4 (web installer), then I believe I tried the standalone. But then after I did the Redistributable 2.0 installer for Windows XP SP2, but I have SP3, does that just mean its included already? (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856EACB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5&displaylang=en)   My friend told me I needed this before I install Office 2010... I dont know!! So after I installed these different .net frameworks and then office. I have Mozilla crashing me, I disabled the framework assistant plug-in and still happens. Then, my FONT for desktop and start menu icons turns (larger/bold) but not within folders, only what shows without clicking into anything.... so.. 1.System Restore is not an option, that restore point is overwritten now... 2. This is not an appearance tab/settings issue with a larger DPI set or anything like that... Because, sometimes I click on my computer to restart and the font is all fine and will continue to be, othertimes, some program or something causes this to happen, I restart the PC and then its fine again... Can anyone tell me what I did wrong and how to fix it, easily.. if possible :) I have searched all over and while I've noticed people with simila

Error: ASP.NET Ajax client-side framework failed to load.

Getting some errors after implementing the calendar control.  Error: ASP.NET Ajax client-side framework failed to load.  Here are some screenshots of the relevant info:   Here's the scenario...  I compile code locally, view the pages in a browser locally, and it all works fine.  Another developer sits down at my machine, logs in with AD account (which create a local profile for his account on my machine), and gets these errors when viewing my locally compiled code.  He then compiles the same code on my machine again just for a test, but still gets the same errors.  Can anyone come up with any good reasons for this behavior?  I put a call into MS and they suggested creating a new profile for the other developer with the errors since this appeared to be profile specific.  Tried doing that with the same results.  Help!
